Orchestra Baobab

Orchestra Baobab

This is the 50th anniversary of Orchestra Baobab, one of Africa’s greatest bands. Adored both at home in Senegal and across the world, Baobab occupy a special place in the history of African music. Their epic story begins in the heart of Dakar’s Medina in the 1970s and extends across the world and into the 21st century, featuring a brilliant assembly of diverse musical personalities and encompassing a unique blend of Afro-Latin styles, international pop, West African griot music, and an after-dark West African nightclub ambience of lilting, mellifluous rhythms.

To celebrate this remarkable milestone, the band are currently on tour. A best-of release is due to March 2024.
