Bambino's album

I just ran across this new album by a young Tuareg I know, Bambino, or Oumara Omar Moctar as I know him. I first heard him play when he and some other musician friends of mine from Niger camped out at my home a few years ago. I thought then that he was very talented, and am now sure of it. I took him and the others out dancing to a local Hermosa Beach Blues Club and he stood in front of the stage swaying and dancing all night, it was fabulous to watch.

Check out his album here, there is a free song download and all the lyrics in English here too!
