Artist to watch...Just a band

A special thanks goes out to Rob Fields of the Bold As Love blog for putting me on to this group. Just a band is not just your average band they are surfers of the nu-wave of African musical tide.

I cant wait for them to garner a larger fan base and start touring, they are more than just a band they are the fore runners of a new movement of afro-musical expression.

Below is a sampling of there album.
