A couple of months ago, I posted a track by a band ( guitar combo? collective? ) from Agadez, Niger, West Africa called Group Inerane. Judging from the email I got, this song, Kuni Madajani, had the same effect on many of you as it did me. Now lead guitarist Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar is playing some U.S. dates with his own group, including, fortunately for us at the bottom of the country, two sets at the Festival International in Lafayette LA, April 26th and 27th, and a set at Jazz Fest in N.O. on may 5th. Thanks to AJ.
