Bombino - Tar Hani

Full review to follow. Although Omara "Bombino" Moctar was plenty good when he first came to Toronto last summer, there was a deeper alchemy in effect now. Whether it was just in being a more experienced traveller, or having learned what impresses North Americans a little more, there was a difference not so much in kind, but in magnitude. The guitar tone was a bit more "rock" and it was put across with more swagger — but all of that is just a way to pull the audience into the groove-trance of this strikingly minimal music.
