Pub Jukebox Record No.0599 : Orchestra Baobab : "Bul Ma Miin" [2002]

The album from which this track is taken is arguably one of the best CD's issued in the 21st century so if you haven't got a copy it's time to close this window and open up whatever favourite store you choose to buy from. I would recommend that you try your local record store but it's doubtful if they have this in stock. I can remember having a box full of their 1978 Paris Sessions album in my shop and trying to sell them for £2.99p and failing. In more recent times that CD sells for over £60! Anyway, you can pick up this beautiful recording for less than a fiver and, trust me, once purchased and played your soul will be uplifted and your life enriched.

This Senegal outfit have been going for donkey's years - their story is a bit like the Buena Vista Social Club in that they split up for years and reformed when hip DJ's started to revive their records. The other similarity is that the music is Afro-Cuban in style, the genre having returned across the Atlantic to fuse with the Congolese Soukous style predominant in the 1960's. Ibrahim Ferrer even appears on this album. There are other influences in the mix, notably from Morocco and at the controls is African cultural ambassador Youssou N'dour. Enough said really ... time to kick off your shoes and let fly around the saloon bar of the pub to the sound of Orchestra Baobab.
