Musical style


Considered one of the most popular groups in Senegal, Orchestra Baobab has recorded no less than twenty albums so far in their career. Recognition arrived in 1989, when world music was thrust to the forefront, mainly thanks to the success of Graceland by Paul Simon. Songs from 1982 were re-edited on what would become Pirates Choice, the album that earned them a place on the international scene. Smooth and catchy, the band offers an irresistible fusion between Cuban music and the traditional rhythms of West Africa.
