Cool guitarist from Agadez, like Group Inerane and Group Doueh, he had Group Bombino. Some super grooves. Sadly his latest albums have been taken mainstream because that guys from Black Keys took him to his studio in Tennessee and recorded his album, Nomad, which is actually really good too. But his first american recorded album, Agadez, is better and was recorded by someone making a documentary on the region of Agadez that hunted him down in Niger where he was in Exile after a couple of his band members were killed. Hefty stories about these desert blues guys and their groups, but they are really groovy.
