For the Tuareg, the desert is freedom. Music is power. Tuareg nomads have lived in the Sahara Desert for centuries, connecting North and West Africa with their camel caravans. They are fiercely independent and have staged many rebellions, fighting to protect their freedom and territory. From, Agadez, Niger, an extraordinary Tuareg guitarist Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar, uses music to inspire a new generation in adapting to a modern world. This film, produced along with his first album Agadez, helped launch Bombino as a world music star. It begins during his exile to Burkina Faso after the 2007 rebellion, and follows him on his return to Agadez where he celebrated the end of the rebellion with his legendary concert in front of the Grande Mosque of Agadez. Don’t miss Bombino’s free live performance in Salt Lake City, on May 15th at the 30th Living Traditions Festival.
