This first recording in 14 years by Guinea's Bembeya Jazz is a landmark in Afropop history. It is also the start of an exciting new chapter in the life of one of Africa's greatest dance bands. This set of new recordings from the vast Bembeya repertoire is both a nod to their glorious past and a preview of new work to come. A revitalized Bembeya Jazz addresses the world to say: the golden era of West African dance bands is back!
