Azamane Tiliade
Bombino Lyrics

Awene azamane
Azamane n tilyaden
Tarha nasnate
Tiglate isgabayyine

Yallawate ayitma
Yoffa anulu gabba
Fel tilyaden nanagh
Tin n anada n azamane
This era
The era of young girls
Their way of loving
Works in a different way

Prayers to you, my brothers
Better to be attentive
For our girls
Those of this era

I traveled with him from Niamey to Agadez last year for a film about his good friend. Bombino is not only one of the most talented musicians in the world, but the most humble and decent dude you'll ever meet. Legend.

last 4 days , i meet him in Jamaa El fna in Marrakech , Morocco , he came to play in many hotels here ,
he was so so modest and happy to talk to his fans .
i told him that im a Berber from desert of Morocco , he told me that he was shocked from Moroccan people .
he didnt expect to find lovely like Moroccan ,

What is the film called? I'd be interested to see it.

There's a reason Tuareg music of Bombino, Mdou Moctar, and Tinariwen is spreading across the globe. No words are necessary, just one listen and you'll know.


There's a quality to this music I've never heard anywhere else. The guitar isn't overly complex but it's so rich. I can't get it out of my head

Exactly! It’s not complicated but it’s rich. He’s a perfect mix of Hendrix and Dylan !


this is the best thing i've heard in a while. I sense a new musical revolution coming from africa! thanking dan auerbach for introducing america to this but most of all thank you bombino for your unbelievable talent, music and spirit!

Saw him live at Lowlands Festival in the Netherlands. He played on the smallest stage but he certainly was one of the best acts.
