A haboob (Arabic: هَبوب‎ "blasting/drafting") is a type of intense dust storm carried on an atmospheric gravity current. Haboobs occur regularly in several arid regions throughout the world. They often form and appear as a large "rolling" cloud of sand and dust particles.
They have been observed in the Sahara desert (typically Sudan, where they were named and described), as well as across the Arabian Peninsula, throughout Kuwait, and in the most arid regions of Iraq. African haboobs result from the northward summer shift of the inter-tropical front into North Africa, bringing moisture from the Gulf of Guinea. Haboob winds in the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, Kuwait, and North America are frequently created by the collapse of a thunderstorm, while haboobs in Australia may be frequently associated with cold fronts.

Bombinos' song, from the album "Nomad" has a rolling feel, slowly building in intensity before leveling off and receeding only to build up again. His searing guitar solo dissolves into a bluesy riff which seamlessly transitions to the final refrain. It reminds me of the music one might hear in an old Western, only with camels galloping across the Sahara
