Beethova Obas is a Haitian folk singer. He came to Tunisia in the 1980s for a festival organized by the French radio broadcast along with a handful of others artists. All of them were backed by a group of local musicians, lead by Fawzi Checkili, the band leader behind Dalton & Carthago. The Tunisian version of “Babylone” taken from an LP made to commemorate the event is even more mellow and beautiful then the original version found on Beethova’s album.
Wonderful stuff unearthed once again by Habbi Funk!
