Bombino – “Agamgam 2004″ – [Glitter Beat]

This is stirring music that gets inside your blood and moves you whether you want it or not, physically and mentally. Read the fascinating sleeve notes to learn about Bombino, who when he was working as a cook’s assistant in the Tenere desert gave a concert around a campfire one night, playing his acoustic guitar and singing his words. Firmly rooted to tradition, but adding modern chords to his music, he continues a conversation that has been going on for years. He works to unite his people in a peaceful way, to alert them to the truth, and rally them to react with knowledge and intelligence. Amidst it all, you hear camels, the crackling of the fire, and whooshes of wind. You feel like you are rollicking along gently as you ride the camel in some songs (B2, B3). This is great stuff. Play it.
