Popular band Osibisa is all set to enthral city audiences
After a hugely successful concert last year , Osibisa is back to entertain Chennai-ites on November 25 and 26 at the Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao concert hall, Harrington Road, Chetpet. A rage in the Seventies, the band stood out for its unique fusion of African, Caribbean, rock, jazz, Latin and R&B music.
There are no fewer than a dozen covers of “Sunshine Day”, the band's popular song, which was also used for the Euro 2000 football tournament. Osibisa has performed in far flung corners of the globe. One of the highlights is a major tour of India, which resulted in a No.1 Gold Album — an unprecedented achievement for a Western band.
The group comprises Teddy Osei (Saxophone), Colin Graham (trumpet), Kofi Ayivor, Nii Tagoe
(percussion, congas), Sol Amarfio, KB (drums), Bessa Simons, Kwame Yeboah, Chris Jerome, Emmanuel Rentzos (keyboards), Kari Bannerman, Gregg Kofi Brown, Wendell Richardson (guitars), Victor Mensah, Herman Asafo (bass guitar), Gregg Kofi Brown, Teddy Osei, Emmanuel Rentzos and Wendell Richardson (vocals).
