Product description

Product Description

Osibisa were true pioneers. They were the first band to successfully promote West African styles, not just in Britain but right across the world, and the first African fusion band to notch up a whole series of best-selling singles and albums in the pop charts with more international hits than any other African band has enjoyed since. They were formed nearly two decades before the term 'world music' was invented, but their leader Teddy Osei can rightly claim that they opened the way for the global fusion scene, and for the success of later African stars, from Youssou N'Dour to Salif Keita.
They were signed by the management team of Gerry and Lillian Bron, best known for their association with heavy metal band Uriah Heep, and their first album was produced by Tony Visconti, famous for his work with David Bowie and T. Rex. The album's art work, with the celebrated Osibisa logo of a flying elephant, was provided by Roger Dean, who became a rock world cult hero thanks to his sleeve designs for Yes.
This 17 track compilation, with songs specially chosen by Teddy, tells their remarkable story, from their first hit single, Music For Gong Gong, in 1971 through to the world hit Woyaya and Dance The Body Music from 1976.
