Bembeya Jazz live

For a change, only photos. Of Bembeya Jazz performing in the Melkweg, Amsterdam, yesterday.
As a Guinean living in the Netherlands commented: "They're better than Baobab".

If you look very closely you can see he really does have diamond fingers!

Baobab make different music. And Baobab was reunioned much later for the european public. - I read once they passed the time in the 70s when the music changed in Senegal.

I saw Bembeya Jazz once in Liège (B), was very nice, but at the end you could feel it was refurbished music... I wish to have seen them 20 years ago in Amsterdam.
