When the three of them met for the very first time back in 2015 – at a project called Forest Jam in Madagascar – a fellow musician who happened to be listening in on their conversation finally interrupted them and asked, “What is this ‘Siselabonga’ that you guys are constantly talking about?” What they were actually saying was “si, c'est bon”, which simply means “yes, it’s good” in French.
They immediately fell in love with this strange new word and started to use it whenever something that called for a joyous exclamation would happen.
Fast forward to the year 2020. After releasing their acoustic debut EP Binta in 2017, shuttling back and forth between Senegal and Switzerland repeatedly, and spending excessive amounts of time together doing what good friends do – breaking bread, sharing mattresses, fighting, making up, jamming, hanging out with each other’s families – they are finally ready to drop Warnama: their sophomore EP. This new collection of songs marks an upgrade from an acoustic trio to an electric, amplified quartet. Jokingly, they refer to this new sound as Kora Rock’n’roll meets Afro Psychedelica.
