Goumar Almoctar, vero nome di Bombino, nasce il 1 gennaio 1980 a Tidene, in Nigeria. Incomincia a interessarsi alla musica a 17 anni suonando in alcune band locali. Esordisce nel 2009 con l’album MUSIC FROM NIGER: GUITARS FROM AGADEZ, VOL. 2. Per il suo secondo lavoro, NOMAD, Bombino va a Nashville per realizzare l’album assieme a Dan Auerbach dei Black Keys. (13 mag 2013)
For centuries, the desert town of Agadez has served as a converging point for the great camel caravans driven by the Tuareg that link West Africa with North Africa and the Mediterranean. Born in 1980 at a nomadic camp near this dusty outpost, the young guitarist and songwriter Omara “Bombino” Moctar was raised during an era of armed struggles for Tuareg independence and violent suppression by government forces. Bombino’s electrifying jams capture the spirit of resistance and rebellion while echoing with guitar riffs reminiscent of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka Touré not to mention rock and blues icons such as Jimi Hendrix, John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Page.
