Super Mama Djombo (Guinea-Bissau)

Super Mama Djombo is a band from Guinea-Bissau who sing in Guinea-Bissau Creole. The band was formed in the mid-1960s, at a Boy Scout camp, when the members were only children (the youngest was six years old). Mama Djombo is the name of a spirit that many fighters appealed to for protection during Guinea-Bissau’s War of Independence.
