Osibisa were an Afro-pop band popular during the 1970s. Though formed in the United Kingdom by seven multitalented musicians, four of them hailed from Africa and three the Caribbean. Their first few albums and one released much later feature monstrous, winged elephants. The covers of their debut and sophomore efforts are by Roger Dean, known for painting fanciful album covers throughout the 1970s for many bands. Vivid colors and mysterious, African-like landscapes fill the scenes, from the Savannah plain to a swampy jungle. Dean also designed the wispy logotype for Osibisa, which has been in use on almost every album cover since.
