Super Mama Djombo Orchestra hail from Guinea Bissau, West Africa. They were formed in a scout camp in 1960s when they were children. All songs on this eponymous collection were recorded in Lisbon, Portugal in 1980. It features six bonus tracks which have never been released on vinyl before. Mama Djombo is the name of a spirit that fighters in the country’s war of independence appealed to for protection. The band mainly played at political rallies before the country gained independence from Portugal in 1974. The band’s music is key to the country’s cultural identity.
