Following the critical acclaim that came with their winter tour to launch the new 'Made in Dakar' album, the iconic Orchestra Baobab's world tour has been gathering praise around the globe throughout 2008.

With their classic 70s line-up almost intact, the band are playing better than ever, still generating the same level of enthusiasm and excitement that has been their trademark for many years. Featuring the hypnotic melodies of virtuoso guitarist Barthelemy Attisso, Issa Cissoko's distinctive tenor saxophone, and the voices of four lead singers, Orchestra Baobab 's unique take on the Afro-Latin sound is as essential as it ever was. Relishing the opportunity to play to a new generation of fans, Orchestra Baobab are simply one of the 'must-see' on tour at the moment.
