Bombino Concert, Agadez

Omara "Bombino" Moctar is a Tuareg musician from Niger. His music adresses political concerns of the Tuareg people. He was forced to flee during Tuareg rebellions and lost friends, which influenced him to condemn guns and use his guitar as a symbol of freedom. To celebrate the end of the conflict, Bombino was able to return to his home city Agadez in Niger in 2010 and hold a large concert at the Grand Mosque.
