Okayplayer is excited to introduce a new group to our OKP fam. Known in their native Sierra Leone as “the voice of the voiceless,” Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew are finally ready to make their U.S. debut with a mixtape in anticipation for their album, due out at the top of 2010 (album features include Talib Kweli, K’naan, Wyclef, Black Thought, and production from ?uestlove, Rashad ‘Tumblin’ Dice’ Smith, Fyre Dept., El-P and more). The Kings Of Salone, produced by DJ Gravy, will be available here on Monday. For today, we’ve got two fresh cuts off the mixtape, with “Bondo Kallay,” and “Makossa.” If you are in NYC you might have seen Bajah + DEC rock the stage with The Legendary Roots at this past week’s Jam Session. In case you missed that, make sure to check their mixtape release party at Santos Party House with DJ ?uestlove on the 1s and 2s, along with mixtape producer DJ Gravy, this coming Monday, 7.27. Check after the jump for the flyer with details.
