Malabo Strit Band - M.S.B.

[Nubenegra Inn]

Equatorial Guinean african pop from this 4 piece named after the capital city of Malabo. A dancey collection that centres around the compositions of guitarist David Owono, the keyboard of Pepe Dougan, percussion of Alex Ikot with singer Muania Sinepi adding her own distinctive flair. In places quite light & frothy but before you know it they are back on track & infectiously grooving along, strongest for me though is the opener 'Bonola'. Graham Radley
