Protest music from Tuareg musicians in Niger. Bambino, or Omoura Moctar, and his band Group Bombino, are my introduction to Saharan guitar. I've only listened to the first album, Guitars from Agadez: Music of Niger once. I enjoy it, but Bambino is my love. He is an exile in Burkina Faso for his protest music, and currently, or soon to be, touring internationally and promoting his upcoming album and a documentary being produced by Zero Gravity Films.
