Ketukuba by Africando

The seventh album of the group Africando, Ketukuba is a tribute to the singer Gnonnas Pedro, Benin's favorite son, who sang with Africando from 1996 until his death in 2004. The title song, Ketukuba was his last recording. It also marks the arrival of a new generation of interpreters, in the form of Senegalese singers Basse Sarr and Pascal Dieng, and American salsero Joe King.

Founded in 1993 by the Senegalese producer Ibrahima Syllart, Africando is today an institution, of which the goal is to federate the black cultures through Afro-Cuban music. A history born from the meeting of some of the best singers in Senegal and many of the best Latin musicians in New York. The continuation is only one succession of successful albums in spite of the periodic changes of the initial group.
