Orchestra baobab* orchestre du bawobab - un nuit au jandeer - Orchestra Baobab - Wikipedia


Various spirits have passed through Baobab over the decades, and their forthcoming album – Tribute to Ndiouga Dieng – is their first since 2007. It’s named for one of the band’s former vocalists, who died last year, and the show opens with Dieng’s dub-inflected Dée Moo Wóor , with Dieng’s son Alpha on vocals. The band only unveil a few of the new album’s songs, of which the lilting romance of Foulo is a highlight. But there is way too much warmth and vigour in their catalogue for things to feel sombre or overfamiliar. It helps that the veteran saxophonist Issa Cissoko is a born showman: he swishes around in his boubou robe, unleashing extraordinary melodic flourishes and sparring with Sidibe and fellow sax virtuoso Thierno Koité.

The West-Africans fuse Afro-Cuban rhythm and Portuguese Creole melody with Congolese Rumba and High Life, which back at their inception in 1970 kick-started a musical renaissance in their native Senegal, turning the capital, Dakar, into one of the world’s most vibrant musical cities. Over the next decade the group dominated the local scene, producing countless hits before disbanding in the mid-80s. But it was their overlooked 1982 album, Ken Dou Werente – which included many of their most famous songs, ‘Coumba’ and ‘Ledi Njemme Mbodj’– that became a cult classic, re-released to huge acclaim by World Circuit in 1989 as Pirate’s Choice .
