—JANKA NABAY & THE BUBU GANG—
Janka Nabay was one of the first musicians to take 500-year-old bubu music outside of his homeland of Sierra Leone, where he’d been a rock star. Nabay was forced to flee the country in the midst of its civil war, and eventually wound up in Philadelphia in 2003. Nine years later, Nabay’s band has released its first album, En Yay Sah, which blends bubu and electronic dance music.
A toned drench bombastic electric guitar, a drum with snap, crackle, and pop, a crunchy tube amp, some sick gnar gnar pedals brah, a bass with an apple bottom, a 75 dollar guitar pick, an acoustic with some Conway Twitty Twang, and some podunk hillbilly git-fiddles.
Fuzzy jangle pop to dance and kiss to.
