Osibisa is a British Afro-pop band, founded in London in 1969 by four expatriate African (Ghana) and three Caribbean musicians. Osibisa were one of the first African heritage bands to become widely popular, leading to claims of founding World Music.

I discovered Osibisa when I was a teen, and this band is the origin of my unconditional love for African musics.
