After 20 years of mixing African and Celtic music in equal measures Baka Beyond have become one of the finest danceable bands around, creating the sound of the global village and defying anybody to sit still.

Not just a touring band, Baka Beyond have a unique relationship with their inspiration – the Baka Pygmies of Cameroon – sending royalties to help their development projects, and even touring with Baka musicians.

In 2013 Baka Beyond celebrate their 20th birthday, releasing a compilation album of their live favourites.
