Bayuba Cante is a multi-national group of musicians based in Germany. Orunmila's Dance is the act's second album and follows 2000's Cheba. Bayuba is an Afro-Cuban Yoruba rhythm that provided the initial rhythmic framework for Bayuba Cante's songs. The diverse musical/ ethnic backgrounds of the members—Chile, Cuba, the Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, and Iran—opens the door to a delightful, unpredictable, world-fusion groove. The stylistic differences from song to song on this album can be dramatic. The mellow West African vibe of "Bembé Afrique" gives way to the entrancing sound of the saray (Middle Eastern violin) on "La Topa Saray." "Daybreak" is based on a North Indian raga, and the title track is a funk-wise take on an Arabic darabuka, embellished with Nigerian lyrics. This is endlessly fascinating music.
