Janka Nabay brings Bubu King

Escapism via music takes us further away today as we travel to Sierra Leone where Janka Nabay, the king of Bubu resurrected the ancient strand back in the 90’s. Prior to Janka, Sierra Leoneans thought of Bubu as little more than a relic for witches and folk singers. Janka electrified bubu music, adding synths and drum machines to blown bamboo shoots and carburetor pipes. Today, he lives outside Philadelphia. True Panther Sounds will release the Bubu King EP, on March 9, 2010.
