Beskrivning

“Unstoppable dance music.” - New York Times

The greatest band in Benin's history, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou, is back. The legendary West African band was founded in 1968 and has included some of the most influential and virtuosic African musicians ever to play a note. Similar to the Rail Band of Mali and Afrika 70 of Nigeria, OPR were superstars throughout West Africa in the 1970's. With an exquisite groove, a homemade Afrobeat funk that combined vodoun (voodoo) rituals, Latin music and James Brown-influenced jams, they played with the likes of Manu Dibango ,Fela Kuti and Gnonnas Pedro. And, despite their age, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou are still going strong! Their newest album is irresistible, featuring tracks with Angelique Kidjo and Franz Ferdinand's musicians.
