After fifteen years of mixing African rhythm and Celtic soul music in equal measures Baka Beyond have become one of the finest danceable bands, creating the sound of the global village. 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.

“…if you are not dancing, maybe you should have someone check your pulse.”
