Recorded in Morocco, his latest album Deran is sung entirely in Tamasheq, his native language, and marks Bombino's first album recorded in Africa in nearly a decade.

We met the Tuareg artist during the singular Sinsal Festival in Vigo, Spain last year, and recorded a sessions of "Matoumfa Tenesse".

Deran is out on 18 May - Pre-order and stream.
Bombino will support Queens of the Stone Age at Finsbury Park on 30 June. Full tour dates on his website.
