Downtown Sound: Delicate Steve + Bombino

July 11, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Delicate Steve
Multi-instrumentalist Steve Marion has been working to redefine, and simultaneously advance the seemingly ambiguous genre of instrumental music. Through a low-key, but complex and at times mysterious sound, Marion and his newest work Wondervisions is a stunning look into what the latest generation of instrumental music is all about.

Bombino
Omara “Bombino” Moctar, a young Tuareg guitarist and songwriter, was raised during an era of armed struggles for independence and violent suppression by government forces. His electrifying jams capture the spirit of resistance and rebellion, echoing guitar riffs reminiscent of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka TourĂ© as well as rock and blues icons Jimi Hendrix and John Lee Hooker. He comes to Millennium Park following the release of his latest CD, Agadez (in stores April 19). For more information, visit http://www.myspace.com/bombinoafrica
