Orchestre du Bawobab – Saf Mana Dem (Senegal, 1975, Disques Buur Records)

Today, I wanted to present you one of my favourite track from L’Orchestre du Bawobab (or L’Orchestre Baobab), a Senegalese Afro Cuban influenced musical combo that plays since the early 70s.

The musicians recorded dozen of albums and singles since the 70s, and are still active today and touring all over the world.

Saf Mana Dem” is a splendid example of the Afro Latin musical blend this band manage to create – Enjoy !
