Sir Jean, the charismatic singer from Senegal is back with the NMB Afrobeat Experience to present their latest album «Silver and Gold», a tribute to the 1960s and 70s hot Highlife-style dance music, with a strong political commitment.
This next album comes as an echo to their previous one «Permanent War» in which they accused silver, gold and money of causing permanent wars. Avoiding sheer pessimism, they ended their release with a positive number («Hope») and called for collective awareness in «Nice Day for a New Start».
With this state of mind, the band recorded «Silver and Gold» in the reknowned Supadope Studios in Lyon, France, and set up this new energetic album full of resistance songs, a blend of rhythms coming up as a new approach to Afrobeat.
Sir Jean & NMB Afrobeat Experience will make you dance along this 9-track journey throughout their new album.read more +
