“Rumbling rhumba dripping with late-night mellowness” NME Available as a double LP, 180gm Vinyl.
‘Pirates Choice’ (WCV063) by the Senegalese band Orchestra Baobab is one of those rarest of albums, an undisputed classic. World Circuit release the album as a double LP for the first time.
Orchestra Baobab’s sound is unique, a beautiful fusion of Cuban and African music. This recording, made in 1982, became something of a Holy Grail to fans of ‘world music’ in the ‘80s and captures that sound to perfection. Listening to these effortlessly relaxed and soulful performances the listener has the impression of eavesdropping on a very special private event.
