A while back, we named Bombino’s Nomad one of our 10 favorite albums from 2013. It’s been holding up nicely. Just imagine the sheer awesomeness of a virtuoso Tuareg guitarist (from Agadez, Niger) combined with the attitude of the Black Keys. Sounds great, right? That's precisely how Nomad sounds because that's precisely what the album is. Dan Auerbach produced the African musician's second solo album, blending traditional Tuareg instrumentation and melodies with the scratchy boot-straps rock ‘n’ roll of our pals from Akron. Album opener “Amidinine” captures that vibe perfectly. Check out “Adinat” for a sense of that northern African percussion winding its way through electric guitars and American production values. Bombino hasn’t been around Cleveland too much, so tonight’s show offers a really great opportunity to catch a unique and stellar musician right here in town. (Sandy)
