Biography

The band “Les Astronautes” was one of firt El Rego’s band. El Rego created by the more “Los Commandos”, but “Les Astronautes” persisted and recorded with other singers as Danialou Sagbohan.
Sagbohan is known to have recorded the first “Sato” rhythm. The name “Sato” created by Clement Melome from Poly-Rythmo is actually the common name for all different modernized and voodoo rhythms. Indeed “Sato” is not voodoo, it’s a rhythm played by royal orphans inside Kingdoms of Dahomey. The rhythm is no longer played and became more popular. Clement Melome and Poly-Rythmo used this “Sato” term footprint so as not to offend the sensitive soul of Voodoo.
Sagbohan is the first to have played and recorded “Sato” rhythm, in 1973, with Black Santiago band and Ignace de Souza. The title was “Zangbeto” (Voodoo night watchmen). “Mina Gan” is taken from a traditional rhythm of Goun people called Kaka and which Sagbohan transfigured into jazz.
