Baba Commandant

Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band are a great band from Burkina Faso. Mandingo music mixed with afrobeat. Ngoni and guitars. I love it.



I really love this documentary (from 2003) about an alternative Black experience in the USA. It’s really interesting. When I grew up in Sweden I was a metalhead. When my friends had long hair I rocked an afro. I was always the odd kid.

Nowadays people are often surprised when they hear I like hard rock and metal. I don’t fit in the stereotype of a metalhead.
