Bombino’s album 'Nomad' has been named among NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums of 2013. He and The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, who produced the album, “turned out to be a fabulous team,” says Bob Boilen, host of NPR's All Songs Considered. “What you hear on 'Nomad'  is Bombino’s already vigorous sound with a bit more bite.”

 'Nomad'  was also recently named to Rolling Stone's list of the 50 Best Albums of 2013 and to Uncut's list of the Best World Music Albums. “For this raw cross-cultural jam, Omara 'Bombino' Moctar — a hot-shot Tuareg guitarist from Niger — hooked up with Black Key Dan Auerbach, who produced the LP with a crate-digging R&B/psych vibe,” says Rolling Stone. “It’s full of hypnotic fuzz, and the cosmic country of ‘Tamiditine’ conjures Workingman’s Dead, if it’d been made in the Sahara desert.”

Bombino and his band recently concluded their 2013 tours of Europe and North America. This summer they'll be making a return visit to Ottawa to perform at the RBC Bluesfest, following last year's terrific performance at the 2013 Ottawa Folkfest.
