With the widely-acclaimed international release of Agadez, Bombino has established himself as a definitive and timeless African guitarist. He layers acoustic and electric guitar parts, undergirded by syncopated clapping, hand percussion, and lean bass lines, to form a rhythmically intricate lattice of propulsive licks, acid stabs, and snaking leads.Bombino’s clenched, nasal singing perfectly complements the restrained, meditative music, leaping out of the hypnotizing grooves with the force of a spell caster’s incantations.
