Luaka Bop Announce New Lp From Janka Nabay


New York based label, Luaka Bop have announced a new LP from Sierra Leone emigrant Janka Nabay (and the bubu gang) entitled Build Music. Following on from 2012’s En Yah Say, the new release is more studio focused, bringing even more electronic influences to the fore. Bubu originates from Nabay's native country and is typically played on bamboo horns and flutes.

Janka rose to nationwide prominence in 90’s war torn Sierra Leone and his work is the first instance of recorded Bubu music. Since fleeing to the United States in 2003, he has gone on to release albums both on Luaka Bop and True Panther.
