Osibisa – Criss-crossing rhythms that explode with happiness
As described on the Osibisa website, the band was formed in London in 1969. Three of its members were from Ghana and three were from the Caribbean. The group played a huge role in increasing awareness of African music.
I bought the first Osibisa album in college without ever hearing their music. Why would I do such a thing? I did it strictly based on the cover artwork which was absolutely striking. Take a look for yourself.
To my surprise, I loved the Osibisa music as much as I loved the album cover Let’s listen to Dawn, the first song from the album.
I hope you enjoyed their music as much as I did. It truly does “explode with happiness”!
