Bombino - Sounds of the Desert
on 10 December 2011
Saw Bombino on Later with Jools recently & thought he had a great, original sound. Almost a North African, latter day Hank Marvin :-)
Downloaded the Album on the strength of that.
Have to say I am left slightly disappointed, there are a couple of standout tracks, but several come across as a studio jam.
Also his guitar work seems to be less prominent on the album whereas it was 'at the front' when I heard him on Jools.
A good Album to chill to but it didn't grab me as I hoped it might.
