Bombino - Azel - Partisan Records

Omara "Bombino" Moctar is an internationally acclaimed Tuareg guitarist and singer-songwriter from Agadez, Niger. His music frequently addresses Tuareg geopolitical concerns and is sung in the Tuareg language of Tamasheq.

On April 1, 2016 Bombino released "Azel" produced by Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors; according to Bombino, Longstreth let him take the sonic lead to great success.

On Azel, the details of Bombino's extraordinary guitar playing come back into sharp focus — and that's this album's greatest pleasure, track to track.
