Balla Sidibé, the legendary Senegalese musician, was the founder of Orchestra Baobab, regarded as one of Africa’s greatest bands. COURTESY via maxazineBalla Sidibé, the legendary Senegalese musician and founder of Senegalese group Orchestra Baobab, died on Wednesday in Dakar.A statement from Senegal’s music association said Sidibé died in his sleep “after a very full day of rehearsals with his musical comrades.”Local media, meanwhile reported that Sidibé, who was is in his 60s, died after a short illness.Sidibé’s bandmate Thierno Kouyate told the Senegal Press Agency that the loss of Sidibé was “very difficult” in more ways than one.“Frankly, we have lost two monumental musicians without compare since he was a singer and a timpani drummer – bringing the two roles together.”“We are very sad to announce that Balla Sidibé, founder member, lead singer, percussionist and composer of Orchestra Baobab passed away this morning. Balla was a giant of African music and a great and gentle man. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fellow musicians,” World Circuit, the group’s former record label, said.Orchestra Baobab, a Senegalese band established in 1970 became one of the most successful African groups of that decade. The band combined Cuban rhythms, soul and jazz with traditional music from Senegal and other parts of Africa.The group disbanded in the 1980s and reunited in 2001 to widespread critical acclaim.Related Legendary Musician dies in Ghana Senegalese peanut farmers eagerly await upcoming harvest Senegalese traditional wrestlers taking up Sumo wrestling
Not bad for a player making his first varsity start. “It was pretty exciting,” Woods said. “Peninsula had been doubting us, telling the newspaper that they beat on us last year. We had to prove ourselves. I am just glad the team came together for this win.” Serra coach Scott Altenberg was stumped about the riddle, however. “I don’t know, to be honest. We had some big plays … wait, that’s all we had, three first downs?” Altenberg said in disbelief. “I thought our offense was going to be better than that. We had chances offensively, but made a lot of mistakes and Peninsula did a great job of controlling the ball.” Luckily for Serra, it had Woods. Woods scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 53-yard reverse play after taking a handoff from Serra running back Carl Winston and zig-zagging his way down the field on a play, breaking a 7-7 tie with 4:44 left in the third quarter that swung the momentum in the game. “Once I got the ball, it was wide open,” Winston said. “The guys laid out some great blocks, and all I had to do was read them. We talked about this play in the locker room, and we knew we were going to come away with the victory.” Winston had 122 yards on 15 carries, including a barreling 53-yard scoring run in the first quarter. But with Peninsula’s hard-nosed defense keying on Winston, it was a perfect opportunity to unleash Woods. “We knew they were going to be focused on me, and no one had seen him before because he was a freshman last year,” Winston said. “He’s got blazing speed, and we had planned that play all week. It worked to perfection.” So did Woods’ 80-yard punt return two minutes later. Woods, who had 153 all-purpose yards, burst through the Peninsula tacklers and had a clear shot at the end zone. The only drawback is that David Paiva missed his extra point, leaving the door open for a Peninsula comeback. “That one I felt coming,” Woods said. “I knew I was going to have a special teams touchdown, and I had a burst of energy.” Despite Woods’ heroics, Peninsula nearly pulled out an improbable rally. Paul Stetson scored on an 8-yard run with 10:14 left in the fourth quarter to close the gap to 20-14. Peninsula’s defense got the ball back from Serra twice, including one final push with 2:46 left. The Panthers used seven plays to move 44 yards, and Duran lofted a pass to Nelson near the Serra 10. But Woods came flying into the play and made an acrobatic catch. “He’s going to be special,” Altenberg said. “We tried to get him the ball early, but he dropped a pass down the sideline. But he’s young, and he’s going to get a lot better.” Stetson rushed for 96 yards on 16 carries, and Ryan Solomon added 65 yards and a touchdown for the Panthers. Peninsula coach Tony Uruburu said he was pleased with his team’s effort, but not the result. “It wasn’t quite enough, was it,” Uruburu said. “But I’m proud of how the guys played. Serra deserved to win that game, but our guys did not hang their heads. “It’s great we held them to three first downs, but it doesn’t matter because they won and they made the big plays.” [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

How can Serra beat Peninsula in a nonleague football game and have just three first downs – for the entire game? Apparently the answer to this conundrum is Serra sophomore receiver Robert Woods. In fact, Woods provided all the answers on Friday night as Serra held off a spirited Peninsula rally, 20-14, in the season opener for both teams, posting its first win over the Panthers in four years. Not only did Woods have a 53-yard scoring run and an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown, Woods intercepted Peninsula quarterback Gideon Duran at the Serra 10 in the final minute to preserve the victory. “I knew I had to get that or else they would’ve scored,” Woods said.
