[Music] Orchestra Baobab – Mouhamadou Bamba

Senegalese band Orchestra Baobab were my first major introduction to Afrobeat and the wealth of music the African continent had during the 60s, 70s and 80s. They are again performing after a long absence, and are due to release new music shortly.

The music itself is a real clash of rhumba, Son and glued together with mournful vocals. A hypnotic piece.
