JANKA NABAY & THE BUBU GANG / TOPSULBAH / SOUTHPAW
JANKA NABAY & THE BUBU GANG perform “TOPSULBAH” at Southpaw in Brooklyn for “Jam for Jeneba Benefit” December 6th 2010
As a life-long humanitarian and educator, this Janka Nabay performance was particularly precious at the benefit for RETRACING JENEBA, a feature length documentary about fellow countryman Joseph Kaifala and his push for educational initiatives in war torn Sierra Leone. Every Janka Nabay performance differs from the last. Yet his ability to transport, to conjure the ancient bubu music of Sierra Leone in a modern, booty-shaking celebration of synths and social consciousness always remains consistent.
