Osibisa

The brainchild of Teddy Osei, a Ghanaian sax player, composer, and drummer who came to London to study music, Osibisa was one of the first African bands to win worldwide popularity. Their mix of African (especially highlife) and Caribbean forms made them a sensation in the mid 70s and their popularity continues today, even though recording dates have fallen off. ~ J. Poet, Rovi

Got their 8 track back in 1971 and I wore it out. They still rock!~
Once upon a time... Back in the day ...One hot summer Friday night around 12:00am three very young men around 17 years old left their employment and walked to the midnight concert at the Majestic theater in downtown Houston, Texas where Osibisa was the only band on stage. For the next 6 hour all I can remember was the sweet sounds of Osibisa and the smell of smoke smoke and more smoke.

I remember Osibisa from my time in USAF in England.
Maryam Mursal, awesome artist:

I remember the disco era in the early 1970's, when I heard Osibisa in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. They became very popular. Today, I listened to them and reflected, that their sound, which mixes African music with western, that sound must've left an impression, which inspired me to listen to a lot of African music a decade later in the U.S. and people like Fela Kuti, Miryam Mursal, Majek Fashek, Amadou and Miriam are all awesome... from Africa

this group brings back many memories of my days in the 70's. I have both 1971 albums- yes vinyl albums!!
Started listening to these guys in 73 while living in London! Outstanding sound! Could give any funk-fision group out there, then and NOW a run for the money!! In my opinion!!
yeah camacho, me too! haven't heard them for about 35 yrs before today & hardly anyone else I know has ever heard of them! pandora is the sh**!
Saw them at the bottom line in the NYC in 77. started listening to them in 72 when I was 22!
I was listening to these guys when I was 13yrs old. One of my favorites was music for gong gong! anybody remember? get back to me. camachoe@opt o n l i n e . n e t
