Killer, limber funk from Porto Novo, in the east of Benin. The sextet had a bunch of radio hits in the mid-70s, and collaborated with the Orchestre Poly- Rythmo de Cotonou. Organ-led, moody. ‘Oga’, master.
Outstanding, funky Afro-soul from Togo, 1977. Engaged songs in English, Mina, and Akposo; full, laidback and grooving, with tasty percussion. 180g in an old-school tip-on jacket.
