Album review: Bombino’s “Agadez”


Genre: world

From: Agadez, Niger

Recommended tracks: Tar Hani, Kammour Taliat, and Tenere

Well-crafted afrobeat that channels rock steady, and early American soul and blues. Agadez showcases a musician who knows how make their instrument speak. A powerful album for any music appreciator. Makes me feel pretty revolutionary.

Really, nothing I have to say is more interesting than the story of this artist and the album.
