Version 1

Hailing from Benin, El Rego et ses Commandos recorded a plethora of unbelievably soulful records in the sixties and seventies that range from traditional rhythms of West Africa, to afro-latin, afro-funk, and even Benin-style blues. Vimado Wingnan is one of the deepest and sought after afro-funk gems in El Rego’s catalog. It was brought to us by Frank Gossner of Voodoo Funk, who has spent the past years mining the dusty corners and back rooms of West Africa in search of records. He put us in contact with El Rego and provided us with access to an extensive portion of his work. E Nan Mian Nuku is a beautifully slow, painfully deep tune which perfectly complements the raw energy of the A-side with the patience of its clave and its lilting melody.
