The storied career of West Africa’s most fabled dance band dates back to 1970 when the group kick-started a musical renaissance in Senegal and turned the capital Dakar into one of the world’s most vibrant musical cities.
Baobab disbanded in 1985 but renewed interest generated by the reissue of their original recordings led to their triumphant reformation in 2001.
Since then they’ve toured the world and recorded three further albums, including 2017’s Tribute To Ndiouga Dieng, their timeless mix of velvet harmonies and warm vocals, smoky sax and sweet guitars lines delivered with a poise and virtuosity built up over a lifetime.http://orchestrabaobab.com
