Bombino drew influence as a youngster from artists such as Jimi Hendrix and Mark Knopfler, among others. In 1997, he returned to Agadez and embarked on a full-fledged musical career.

While in exile, Ron Wyman the filmmaker went foraging for Omara after listening to his tape recordings. Wyman pushed him to record his songs properly once they met.

In 2011 Bombino released his debut album, ”Agadez”. The album debuted at number one on the iTunes World Chart. His second album, ”Nomad”, debuted at number one on the iTunes and Billboard World Charts in 2013.

”Azel”, ”La Sombra”, ”Deran”, and ”Live in Amsterdam” are just a few of the albums he’s released since then. For his album ”Deran”, he was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best World Music Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2018.
