The Bubu Gang's En Yay Sah album. The Bubu Gang - En Yay Sah Album Lyrics.

Album · 2012 · 8 Songs. The product of a remarkable cross-cultural collaboration, En Yay Sah finds Sierra Leonean singer and musician Janka Nabay enlisting a cast of talented Brooklyn musicians to cut a series of rambunctiously imaginative songs in the Bubu style. Bubu's relentless rhythms are derived from the pulsing ceremonial music that accompanies the Ramadan festivities of the Temne people of northwest Sierra Leone.

The Bubu Gang, Nabay's backing band on En Yay Sah, comprises members of Skeletons, Chairlift, Highlife, and Saadi, and their method of collaboration was simple: Nabay showed them the rhythms he was working with and the songs he'd written, and he turned them loose. Nabay's weathered but agile voice is the kind of instrument that would likely sound at home on a sparse field recording, so it's curious how well it integrates with Jason McMahon's sleek-toned bass and Michael Gallope's bright, tropical keyboard sounds.

A debut album, En Yay Sah (which translates as I’m Scared), followed in 2012 on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label and encapsulated the live shows he’d been playing with the gang at international festivals, a psychedelic trip that found acclaim with the indie music press. Nabay’s last album, 2017’s Build Music, made his frenetically entangled beats more pronounced (not unlike South Africa’s Shangaan electro sound); his previous rockier freestyles with his hipster acolytes were swapped for housier, poppier beats, as on the tracks Santa Monica and Stop Jealous.

En Yay Sah. Artist: Janka Nabay & the Bubu Gang. Album: En Yay Sah, 2012. Please visit ww. ankanabay. com & ww. uakabop. Kill Me With Bongo. Fuck your white hipster exotica bullshit. Janka Nabay and his gang of merry cohorts (including members of Skeletons, Gang Gang Dance and Zs) are making actual new Afrobeat-inspired music without the tongue-in-cheek self-referential ego trips of American indie rockers. In fact, you should go listen to Feba right now in all its dancey glory. Originally from Sierra Leone, Nabay’s assembled a perfect band here in the States to flesh out the sound of his propulsive, catchy, dazzlingly complex songs. It’s probably impossible to compare it to anything else you’d hear this year.
