Osibisa exploded into the music world in the early 1970s with a pulsating and vibrant sound that was to engulf the post 60s rock scene. Their first albums were as distinctive for their famous ‘flying elephant’ fantasy artwork covers by the great Roger Dean as they were for their exciting music.
With their unique fusion of African, Caribbean, Rock, Jazz Latin and R&B they paved the way for other potent musical forces such as Bob Marley and the emergence of internationally appreciated African music in the 80s. Now seen as one of the leading artists in World music, Osibisa’s infamously energetic and extravagant stage shows will be sure to get your feet moving in The Lantern this May.
The current line up for the Osibisa Tribal Reunion tour includes:
Ghanaian founder member Sol Amarfio (vocals and percussion)
Robert Baily (keyboards)
Wendell Richards (guitar and vocals)
Kofi Ayivor (percussion and vocals)
Jean Dikoto Mandegue (bass and vocals)
Gregg Kofi Brown (lead vocals and guitar).
This is a standing event.
