Omara "Bombino" Moctar is a brilliant young Tuareg guitarist and singer-songwriter from Agadez in Niger, with Nomad, a bone-shaker of a new album, produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach at his studio in Nashville.
Fans of his last album, Agadez, and Ron Wyman's accompanying film will find a heavier but equally hypnotic and raw Tuareg rock. Bombino hadn't heard of the Black Keys before Auerbach introduced himself after a show last year – his Western influences were Hendrix and Knopfler.
For his only UK show, expect a crowded room and spectacular sub-Saharan guitar shredding.
