Fill me in…
#afro had a good week this past week and @pedronunes took us to Guinea-Bissau for some music by Zé Manel. If you’ve heard of the guy, you know your shit because the man is not easy to find. He got his start early: “At age six, he formed a band to play music at boy scout camp”, and when they started to play around town (quite successfully), they had to kick out a couple members who weren’t playing up to par. Then, at age 7, he became the star of the band (that came to be called Super Mama Djombo) at things took off from there. For his full story (which is worth reading), you can check out his bio page on Cobiana Records.
