In 1970 Super Eagles was disbanded only to rise up again in 1973, as Ifang Bondi. The name was new as the sound, featuring for the first time indigenous Sene-Gambian rhythms, melodies and instruments. They integrated traditional instruments as kora, balafon, sabar, talking drum, bugarabu and djembe with modern instruments as the electric guitar, bass and keyboards. As such they have been credited to be the true originators of the current “Afro-Manding” sound as extemporised by stars such as Yousou N’dour, Salif Keïta and Mory Kante.
