Here’s a group that few if any of you have heard of, but if you give it a listen, I think you’ll like it. I first heard them back in the ’70s, when my dad was stationed overseas. The group is called Osibisa, based in London, and you might describe it as a grittier, rootsier version of Earth Wind and Fire. Osibisa had a bit of a cult following back then, and I still listen to their music today.
After wearing out a couple of their LPs, I finally got the chance to hear them play in a small dancehall in Munich, and boy did they bring that place to life!! Who knew those Germans could dance?
(Actually, they couldn’t.)
