About this Event

ORCHESTRA BAOBAB

'Old-school Africa at its finest.' The Observer

'One of the world's greatest live acts.' The Guardian

West Africa's most iconic dance-band are back!

Recently celebrating their 50th anniversary, Orchestra Baobab, are 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 1960s 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.
