The second volume of recordings from Benin's magnificent Orchestre Poly Rythmo De Cotonou, this time recorded at the EMI studios in Lagos for the Albarika Store label. Expect Afro-beat, Psychedelia, Latin and Funk intertwined with centuries old chants and rhythms derived from the traditional Beninese Vodoun religion. The result is a heavy hypnotic sound...Les Echos Hypnotiques.

Highly recommended!
