Y13W14 .ORCHESTRE POLY-RYHTMO DE COTONOU - ADJRO MI.

Annoucement of a new Analog Africa release is always a moment full of pleasure, excitement and surprise!
And here is the last one, Analog Africa's 3rd volume about the most emblematic and legendary Beninese band, the Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou! You may think something like 'Oh, one more volume....' but watch out ! Don't get it wrong! This volume may be the best of the serie!
It's when you think that you already know everything that arise something showing you that you're only at the beginning!
From pure Vodoun rhythm to Afro Bossa Nova, the compilation presents 14 unexpected and highly addictive tracks recorded by the band between 1969 and 1980!
Here is in worldwide exclusivity one track extract from the compilation and that appear to be my favorite

ORCHESTRE POLY RYTHMO DE COTONOU - ADJRO MI
Cavacha Fon composed by Vincent AHEHEHINNOU
Originally released on Sema-Benin / ED.SEMA 002

Dedicated to the memory of the band leader Melome Clement, who sadly left us on last December, this release has another special taste to me.
I'm indeed very proud to be able to say that I've been invited by Samy Ben Redgeb, label's owner, to create the cover and full packaging of the release in a pure 'LesMainsNoires' style! Great! Many thanks for your trust Samy!

Do not forget to check this video just put online by Analog Africa of a band's live perfomance on TV!
Original and amazing feature!
