A composition by Baba Sissoko, "Bibisa" sees Fonseca’s piano talking with Fatoumata Diawara's voice, and a duo of African strings performed by Baba Sissoko (n’goni) and Sekou Kouyate (kora). “It’s an organic and spiritual theme, which imagines a small group of people gathered underneath a tree to talk,” explains Fonseca. “But when really listening, you realize that the clave (the rhythmic pattern on which Cuban popular music is organised) is there from the beginning and that the whole piece plays on this contrast between this Cuban leitmotiv and the noticeably African elements.

BIBISA es parte del album YO.
