One of the Africas most iconic and influential bands Orchestra Baobab will be coming to London for one very special night in the spellbinding setting of Roundhouse.
Orchestra Baobab fuse Africo-Cuban jazz, with Congolese Rumba, ‘Son Cubano’ and Portuguese Creole. Formed in 1970 as the house band for Baobab Club in Dakar the band went on to become one of the dominant African bands in the 1970s. Recording 20 albums before breaking up in 1987.
