Osibisa

Osibisa are globally renowned as the founding godfathers of Afro-rock; their vibrant sound and ground-breaking live performances influenced some of the greatest musical icons, such as Stevie Wonder, Santana, Al Green, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Nash and Bob Marley.  In 2021, these forceful pioneers unveil their first new material since 2009, with their highly anticipated new album, ‘New Dawn’, released on 23 April 2021 - 45 years since their debut hit, ‘Sunshine Day’ stormed in to the UK charts.  Osibisa founder, Teddy Osei, reunites original member Robert Bailey, with Osibisa veteran, Gregg Kofi Brown, as he directs a fresh new album for 2021.  The band also welcome an injection of new talent, as they showcase their newest female members into the previously male dominated band.  As the first ever African band to play at the iconic, Marquee Club, it’s poignant that they’re now the first signing to newly formed, Marquee Records.  Osibisa celebrate six decades of afrobeat joy, and prove that their sound is fresher and stronger than ever – it’s a New Dawn!


Reformed, revamped and reinvigorated, Osibisa of now, takes flight from their pioneering Afro-rock ties of old, leaping into multi-genres of rock, reggae, jazz, calypso, pop and soul; whilst weaving their signature African vibes into every melodic fibre.  Big band instrumentation, fused with the utter joy that naturally gushes from the cumulative work of multiple band members, Osibisa, exude elation from every beat of their music – you can ‘t help but join in the pleasure party.
