FIL2012 Scenes: Bombino

Bombino, led by a Taureg guitarist, playing desert rock with protest themes against the governments of Mali and Niger were in town last night as well. Taureg rebels just recently declared independence from Mali on April 6th, forming the state of Azawad...and that region is potentially facing a major humanitarian disaster and unrest. Made me wish I could understand the lyrics to their songs last night.  Read more about Azawad here.
