Strand Theatre, 345 Main Street, Rockland

Meditative and earthy, Niger-based musician BOMBINO conjures the expansiveness of the Sahara landscape with captivating vocals, trancelike guitar playing, and evocative rhythms. Born as Goumar Almoctar in a nomadic Tuareg encampment, he came of age during a time of political upheaval, fleeing with his family to Algeria and returning seven years later to take on music professionally. BOMBINO’s latest release Nomad was named among NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums of 2013 and Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2013. MICROMASSE, a trio from Portland Maine, delights all with their jazz/funk/afrobeat groove.Tickets $25/General Admission. Lobby and balcony bars will be open for 21+ with a valid ID.
