After posting the 4th volume with Yehouessi Lepold, let's enjoy this "volume 5", recorded in 1978. Lohento's composition "Agbaza Min Nin" became famous in 1977 during the FESTAC, a live that I will post later. The song talks about the beauty of africam women's light-skinned. You can also recognize, in this LP, Tijani Kone's saxophone, just coming from Mali.
