About "The System"
Australia’s premier afrobeat champions, The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, are back! Emerging from their top secret recording bunker, this is their first offering from these recent sessions and you know it’s drenched with that beautiful vintage HopeStreet Recordings sound! With Senalgalese vocalist/dancer/percussionist Lamine Sonko at the helm, the track is his quest to find a balance in our world between the people and the often misused structure of society.

The System hits hard from the get go, horns grab you then the groove just pulls you in. Sonko’s drums beat out a fiery afro pulse, building heat over a sea of rhythm before the vocals arrive to ask the question “are we human, or the system?”
