Rumbasa

Forget Beyoncé’s Grown Woman or Yemi Alade’s Sugar. This banger by Sally Boss Madam is the definitive Afro-psychedelic music video of recent times; at least since Angelique Kidjo’s Agolo. I believe Rumbasa refers to a musical subgenre that blends elements of rumba, kwasa kwasa, soukus and house.

There’s something really, REALLY sexy about the Rumbasa video but in a different way from the norm. Stereotypical roles are reversed and this time it is a bunch of physically fit, half-naked men that get told what to do. Some really good dancing and amazing guitar riffs ensures that there’s enough of everything to go around. Kickass scriptwriting by Lovisa Mungu.
