Janka Nabay & the Bubu Gang Release New Track, Sign to Luaka Bop

Sierra Leone bubu king and musical madman Janka Nabay is back with a new song, "Eh Man Ah," for your listening pleasure. The track is off his forthcoming three-song EP An Letah due to drop March 20th via True Panther. "Eh Man Ah" showcases a new, more psychedelic, sonically-rich Nabay. Full of gritty keys and high-end reverb-drenched guitar, the song builds off the frantic energy of “bubu” dance music for a hypnotic offering that enhances the Sierra Leone-style without transforming it into something entirely different. Impressive stuff.
