Gnonnas Pedro fut aussi un vibrant acteur du mouvement "afrobeat". Enregistré en 1979 ce single de rythme agbadja moderne rend un hommage appuyé au Général Mathieu Kerekou (voir dos de la pochette) qui transforma le Dahomey en République Populaire du Bénin c’est à dire une république marxiste.

Great tune, but the zip only contains one song (Pt. Yhombi Moniga Wezon), and not the song "30 Novembre".

I really appreciate all the work you've done promoting the beautiful music of Benin!
