Osibisa

{j2storecart 36}

Known as ‘The Godfathers of World Music', Osibisa exploded onto the music world in 1971 with a pulsating and vibrant sound that was to engulf the tired post 60’s rock scene. Translated from Ghanaian Osibisa means ‘criss-cross rhythms that explode with happiness’.

The Osibisa poly-rhythms and percussive breaks were to be an integral feature of the disco boom that was to follow in the late 1970s. The band’s unique fusion of Africa, Caribbean, rock, jazz, Latin and R&B paved the way for other potent music forces such as Bob Marley and the emergence of African music in the 80’s. Indeed Osibisa are seen by many as the Godfathers of World Music.
