Release Date:03/03/2015;Notes:From Senegal - home of Youssou N'Dour, one of this band's biggest fans - and originally the house band of a popular night club, Orchestra Baobab came together in 1970, but waited 12 years to record their masterpiece. PIRATES CHOICE became a Holy Grail to lovers of world music, who were entranced by it's shuffling rumba rhythms and delicate instrumental virtuosity. To celebrate the band's recent reunion for a UK tour, It's an undiluted, soulful, relaxed set of rhythmic grooves laid down by an African group who felt a huge Cuban influence on their mellow sound. A legendary cult release is targeted to core world music aficionados, and boasts the same breakout protential as the label's much admired vintage releases by Los Zafiros and Los Estrella's de Areito.;Track List:1.
