Senegal’s legendary band Orchestra Baobab is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a new album and single ’50 ANS’ and tour. Expressing all the talent of the group and what has made its success along the years: a rich and intense rhythmic base, captivating melodic singing, and superb brass arrangements.
“The decades pass but we are still here” seem to say the oldest musicians of the group, like Thierno Koité on saxophone, Moussa Sissokho on congas, Taga Koité on drums or Yahya Fall on rhythm guitar. “Our group is united,” add the youngest. We are united in all our diversity, old or young, yes this group is an institution but we continue on our journey with the same legendary enthusiasm, always joyful, more accomplices than ever!
’50 ANS’ pays tribute to the different generations who have made this group’s five magnificent decades of labour and love of music.
In 2024 the sound of Baobab is indeed intact, a unique blend of Afro-Cuban style, international pop and traditional Griot music. Their creativity is always driven by fabulous melodies, which have made the reputation of Orchestra Baobab!
