ORCHESTRE POLY-RHYTHMO

Sage Gateshead Their new album was finished last year and opens a new chapter in the history of the Poly-Rythmo. These ten songs feature compositions by Vincent Ahehehinnou, and also by historic members Loko Pierre and Gustave Bentho. The band went back to the Satel Studio, one of the most legendary studios of the African continent to put down the record. It is where the history of the band was written, when the Poly-Rythmo invented afrobeat at the same time as Fela Kuti who they often played with in Lagos and Cotonou. An instant Afrobeat classic, Madjafalao (be careful) sets the tone of this generous record. http://www.sagegateshead.com/event/orchestre-poly-rythmo/
