The activist and musican comes to Melbourne

This event has finished

After a playing the Falls Festivals over New Year's, Omara "Bombino" Moctar is headlining at the Corner Hotel for the release of his latest album Nomad, produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. With a back story to rival most musicians, Bombino made it into the international music scene after filmmaker Ron Wyman became enchanted with his music after hearing one of his cassettes while travelling through Bombino's hometown Agadez in Niger. It took Wyman over a year to track Bombino done, eventually finding him in exile in a neighbouring country, before helping Bombino produce his first album in 2011.

Since then, Bombino's been touring the world and now, he's bringing his mix of blues and rock to Melbourne for the first time.
