Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou 'The Vodoun Effect'

[Analog Africa AACD064]

Covering 1973-1975 this is funk & sato from Benin’s obscure labels often recorded in the most basic of ways. This is music for the people, people who want to dance to this raw mix of horns, guitar, organ on a driving bedrock of bass and drums. It’s amazing where all this brilliant music keeps coming from but you end up wondering how you’ve not come across it before. Thanks Analog Africa – keep them coming. Graham Radley.
