LOS 5 DEL ESTE, Sa Ximbomba, 1964

This shows “The 5 from the East” in a fake oriental setting, hence the choice of their name.

“Sa Ximbomba” is sort of a take on “Mustafa”, a French 60s pop hit with a oriental, i.e. originally meaning “Eastern”, twist.

A reminder that 50 years ago, popular ideas about “The East” were, however naive and cornball, still much more passionate and positive than in today`s Islamiophobic times…
