Liner Notes
"HAILING FROM A BOY SCOUT CAMP DEEP IN THE JUNGLE OF LATE 1960’S GUINé-BISSAU, SUPER MAMA DJOMBO’S FOUNDING MUSICIANS HAVE COME A LONG WAY TO DISPLAY THEIR WONDERFUL MUSIC TO THE WORLD! DRUMMER Zé, SINGER HERCULANO, AND ORIGINAL GUITAR PLAYERS GONçALO AND TABORDA PICKED THE NAME MAMA DJOMBO AS AN HOMAGE TO A LOCAL GODDESS REVERED BY INDEPENDENCE FIGHTERS. THREE MORE ALBUMS WOULD FOLLOW BEFORE THE DEMISE OF THE BAND IN THE EARLY 1980S, DUE TO LACK OF POLITICAL SUPPORT. THE NEW MILITARY POWER IN BISSAU DEPOSED PRESIDENT LUIS CABRAL, WHO WAS A STRONG ADVOCATE OF THE ORCHESTRA. NOW REUNITED, SUPER MAMA DJOMBO MAKE UP FOR THE LOST TIME AND STAND AS ONE OF WEST AFRICA’S GREATEST ORCHESTRAS. LISTENING TO THE 1978 RECORDED "FESTIVAL" ALBUM IS TRULY THE BEST WAY TO ENJOY THE MUSIC OF GUINé BISSAU’S MUSICAL HEROES."
