Video # 14 - Orchestra Baobab, Just 4 You, Dakar, 3.24.07

Last night I went to Just 4 You around midnight and Orchestra Baobab did, in fact, play, unlike last Saturday. They were fantastic. I heard them a little over a year ago while we both were playing at Adelaide Festival of Arts. Baobab has been around since the 1960s with varying lineups, and their audience seems to be mostly local adults and tourists of all ages. The Senegalese youngsters seem to prefer hiphop, the newest m'balax, etc. Oh well, their loss... thats stuff's cool, but these guys kill! All vibe.
