Released:
Label: Cumbancha
Bombino's solo debut doesn't punch you in the gut with the same kind of keening, rock 'n' roll pathos as some desert blues artists, but Agadez is just as moving. The specialty of this Tuareg singer-songwriter (leader of Group Bombino) is more subtle, comprising incredibly skillful guitar work and quiet craftsmanship that dances in and out of American and African blues, rock and folk. As he explores all the nuances, nooks and crannies between them (see "Tenere"'s country blues), he also pays loving tribute to his homeland, Agadez, an important city in the Tuareg struggle against persecution.
