Osibisa have reigned supreme as the undisputed kings of African music since the band formed in 1969, introducing the world to a new pulsating and vibrant sound. Their name translates as crisscross rhythms that explode with happiness and this concert filmed as part of the Live From London series exemplifies that mantra. This performance, recorded at the Marquee Club's 25th anniversary celebrations, captures Osibisa at the high point of their career and includes the hits The Warrior, Happy Children and Sunshine Day. Osibisa's unique percussive fusion of African, Caribbean, rock, jazz, rhythm and blues totally engulfed the rock scene of the early 1970s, as their self titled first album zoomed into the Top Ten album charts around the world. Their roots, planted in Africa, stretch back to the time when band leader Teddy Osei played with his group The Comets in Ghana. They proved to be one of West Africa's leading acts but, seeking to expand their horizons, moved to London determined to broaden their exposure and inject an African influence into the international music scene. Their debut album was followed up with another equally successful release Woyaya in 1971 and Heads in 1972. The albums were the final confirmation that Osibisa were more than just a passing phenomena and their signature sound began to manifest itself in the music of their contemporaries, most noticeably in the disco boom of the late 70s. Their heavy recording and touring schedule began to take a toll on the group as several members departed to lead closer family lives or to pursue solo projects. According to Teddy Osei this was a blessing in disguise, make no mistake, everyone who has played with Osibisa helped with the sound and the creativity of the group but at the same time this meant that we did not become stale . The album Welcome Home (released in 1975) spawned the single Sunshine Day , a massive commercial hit for the band around the world and it remains one of their most requested songs. As their music became more and more recognised, so to did their stage performances. Track Listing: 1. Fire 2. Life 3. Ayioko 4. Whose Got The Paper 5. Woyaya 6. Music For Gong Gong 7.
