Atlanticrockers: Yanka Nabay

When I came across Yanka Nabay and the Bubu Gang, the music was as familiar as the hair on my skin. This is the music we danced across town to, raised the dust in our dance steps and chased the devil in three day celebrations during Christmas and Pray Day to. This is the music I grew up on in that border town in Sierra Leone! And here it is, like me, across the Atlantic! It seems Yanka Nabay has introduced Brooklynites to that deep soul and dance induce-able sound from Sierra Leone. You don’t believe me, listen to either one of these videos (or both), and if you can resist moving some part of your body to the rhythm, you must be dead.
