“Magnificent…takes our breath away and lets us know we’re entering into an environment far    removed from anything most of us have experienced” – Richard Marcus,

“I can’t imagine any album being better than this in 2011″ – Derek Beres, Huffington Post

“…one of the best African discs of the year and without a doubt, the most magical!” – Les Inrockuptibles, Paris

“…The next generation (of Tuareg) belongs to Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar” – Radio France International

“This is a record that can be placed in the category marked ‘spellbinding.'” – Montreal Mirror

“His desert rock and roll guitar had the audience cheering. It is the new sound of Niger and with his new album and a film he’ll soon be widely known. A member of the rebellion in Niger, Bombino brings a message of peace to the world and is an example of the spirit of changing guns for guitars.” – reporting from Festival In the Desert, 2011
