Sidiba – Super Boiro Band

After Independance (1958), the first state Orchestra was created as Orchestre de la Garde Republicaine and was instructed to drop “European march tunes in favor of music benefiting the new nation”. Later the orchestra split into 2 bands: 1st and 2nd.

Orchestre 1er changed name to Super Boiro Band.
