Senegalese band Orchestra Baobab is one of the pioneers of Afro pop and they have impacted many artists to come, like Youssou N'Dour and Baaba Maal. Their new album, "Made in Dakar" has new songs, as well as a collection of pieces from the band's 20 records, some of which were only available on tapes. [WNYC]
Orchestra Baobab played their first of two free NYC shows at Rockefeller Park (part of the River to River festival) last night (June 25th). Their next show is today in Metrotech at noon. More pictures from yesterday below....
