M’Bamina (“Lightning”) was formed in late 1972 by six emigres from Congo, Benin and Cameroon in Pavia near Milan, Italy. After the release of their debut album African Roll in 1975, they performed at a landmark concert at Cameroon’s Stade de Yaoundé together with Claude François and Manu Dibango. A year later, the band opened for a James Brown concert in Paris.
