Teranga Beat proudly presents Bai Janha alias "Sweet Fingers" and his psychedelic steamroller, Karantamba. Composer, arranger, guitar player in Guelewar and Ifang Bondi, Bai Janha is undisputedly the most important musician to have come from Gambia. Band leader of the groups Black Star, Whales Band, Fabulous Eagles and Supreme Eagles, founder of the group Alligators who later became Guelewar, Bai is the one who created the unique psychedelic sound in the region of Sene-Gambia, mixing traditional compositions with soul. His musical innovations contributed to the domination of Afromanding music in West Africa for more than a decade. This record presents Bai Janha with his last group, Karantamba, a school for young musicians, in a totally unreleased recording, recorded in Senega at "Sangomar" Club in 1984. The double gatefold LP's liner notes and CD's booklet include more information and photographs, outlining the living legend's musical career and the wicked percussive rhythms and compositions of this album.
