about

*Baranta are a group of diverse musicians teamed up to produce an exciting percussive, jazzy and funky sound.
It has mostly African musical influences, combined with some Latin and lot's of funky jazz!
The project commenced in late 2005, and was recorded during occasional down time, at the now defunct London studio - SULTAN SOUND.
Many of our friends - crack session musicians and some artists in their own right, freely contributed to the project.
The two guys at the helm, were Francis Fuster and Sultan Makendé.
