Bombino - "Tazidert"

Photo by Noemi Monu

Omara "Bombino" Moctar hasn't released any new music since 2018's Deran, but the guitar master is back with "Tazidert." The Toureg folk hero has this unique sound that is all his. Hailing from Niger, he infuses African rhythms with modern rock and folk, and plays one of the most hypnotizing guitars out there. The guitar work on "Tazidert" is just mesmerizing. It's the kind of music that you aren't quite sure if it makes you want to dance or just sit with your mouth agape just taking the entire thing in. This is world music for those who don't think they appreciate world music.

Omara Moctar says of his new song:

“These are tips for being good, you have to be patient, the world has changed a lot but everyone has their destiny.”

You can watch the video for "Tazidert" below. The song will be included on a forthcoming album. For more on Bombino, check out the artist's website.
