Recommended by Zach Frimmel

When Bombino (born Omara Moctar) debuted his desert blues, he was immediately labeled as the Jimi Hendrix of Niger. Several international tours and a fourth full-length (Deran) later, he still lives up to the accolade. In fact, Moctar has also garnered the title “Sultan of Shred” by the New York Times and “World’s Best Guitarist” by Noisey. Similar to Mali’s Songhoy Blues and stories from the North African area, Bombino’s Deran (meaning “best wishes”) soulfully addresses his family’s diaspora to Algeria during the Tuareg Rebellion, political persecution, and concern for the Tuareg people.
