The first studio album in over 25 years from Benin's legendary band!

Following on from their album on Analog Africa which unearthed orchestre Poly-Rhytthmo's killer long-forgtten seventies output, the legendary group return with a fresh new album for Strut! The music is funky, raw and heartfelt! Produced in Paris entirely on vintage analogue studio equipment, this new album refreshes Poly-Rythmo classics such as 'Gbeti Madjro' (featuring Angelique Kidjo) alongside a firing selection of brand new compositions. The album also features a special bonus track, an exclusive collaboration between Poly Rythmo and Franz Ferdinand's musicians. Includes a full-colour booklet with extensive liner notes and photos!
