Mami Wata

‘Mami Wata’ Keyim Ba’s exciting new album brings the influences of reggae, funk and rap to West African grooves. Heralded as “an Afro-Australian treasure”, this brilliant 9 piece has a rhythm section born in West Africa. Led by the ever charismatic, Sibo Bangoura from Guinea, the group has enormous energy that translates to the album. Recorded at The Grove and Rifton Records, Mami Wata includes a clever mix of traditional sounds with an urban groove, very much Keyim Ba’s signature sound. Keyim Ba is joined by a collection of stellar guest musicians on the recording.
