One of the prolific 21st century musical breakthroughs from the East to West is the story of Bombino. Omara “Bombino” Moctar was born in Niger to a family of nomadic Tuaregs near the town of Agadez. Spending much his childhood in an encampment with seventeen siblings, he strayed from the norm of tradition and became infatuated with not only guitar playing, but also the different styles he would be exposed to from travelers and locals alike.
Z2 Entertainment is proud to present Bombino at the Fox Theatre on Thursday, May 30th. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, March 1st for $15.00.Bombino was raised as a Muslim and taught to consider honor, dignity and generosity as principal tenets of life.
