Okay Acoustic With Bombino

Okayafrica TV sat down with Bombino in Central Park to record the latest installment of Okay Acoustic just before the Niger-based songwriter and his band hit the stage at our SummerStage showcase. For their session, the Tuareg guitarist and his group’s percussionist delivered a stripped-down rendition of “Imidiwan,” one of the standout psychedelic desert grooves on his recent Nomad LP; a song that Bombino explains is named after “friendship.” The resulting acoustic version is a calm and entrancing interpretation of the original, showcasing Bombino’s complex finger-picking and his infectious Tuareg guitar riffs. Watch our episode of Okay Acoustic with Bombino above and our video re-cap of his SummerStage performance alongside Young Fathers and Fantastic Negrito below.
