Tuareg singer Bombino's message of peace

Omara 'Bombino' Moctar, a young Tuareg guitarist and songwriter from Niger, was raised during an era of armed struggles for independence and violent suppression by government forces.

He says his album Agadez contains songs inspired by the beauty of the desert.
