Bombino Australian Tour Hobart

Concert or Performance

23 Nov 2018

Following the release of his fourth consecutive number one album ‘Deran’ earlier this year, Tuareg guitarist and singer Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar who is currently on a massive European tour has announced Australia as his next tour destination. Bombino will bring his captivating band to Oz performing a set list of classic favourites alongside the all new Deran.
Born in the shade of an Acacia tree about 80 miles north-west of the ancient town of Agadez, Bombino has a deep connection to his home. While in recent years the rest of the world has largely written off Tuareg as a hot and savage Sahara wasteland, a bolt hole for religious extremists and terrorists with little to offer apart from the oil, gold and phosphates that lie beneath its soil, Bombino would like us to take a closer look and think again. His feelings are beautifully summed up in the song “Tehigren” (‘Trees’) from Deran, ‘Do not forget the green trees / In our valleys in the Sahara / In the shade of which, / Rest the beautiful girls / Radiant and lovable’. “We’re a people who wish for peace”.
