Stanislas Tohon: "Yallow"


Maybe you discovered Stanislas Tohon, called Tohon Stan, in a previous post. He recorded this single with the "Satelites" orchestra in 1977. Tohon Stan will become famous all over Africa thanks to Sam Fan Thomas, the geat cameroonian singer, who interpreted the title "Yallow" which would become a hit. Sam Fan thomas recorded a fantastic album on Satel Music which was early posted.
In 1978, Stan Tohon created the Tchink-system orchestra. The tchink music style remain tied to the Tchinkoumé tradition, a style of music based on the sacred "water music" that was traditionally used to drive out evil spirits after death. This rhythm can be heard on the title "Africa".
