Item Description

Orchestra Baobab’s sound is unique, a beautiful fusion of Cuban and African music. This recording, made in 1982, became something of a Holy Grail to fans of ‘world music’ in the ‘80s and captures that sound to perfection. Listening to these effortlessly relaxed and soulful performances the listener has the impression of eavesdropping on a very special private event.”
