Gnacadja Cyprien


I waited a long time to discover this record and its author, Cyprien Gnacadja, also called "Soupi". I have no information about him nore the arranger, T.H. Rossifano, nore the backing-band. I also heared nothing about the label "Impressions Soleil" ("Sun Prints"). Despite the darkness, the title "Wangnigni Mon Djin Nonnon" is one of the best title I had the opportunity to hear. The side A, with "Africavilé" is tremendous Pachanga with typical Benin's melancholy.

J'ai attendu longtemps avant de découvrir ce disque et son auteur, Cyprien Gnacadja, alias "Soupi". Je n'ai aucune information sur lui, ni sur l'arrageur, H.T. Rossifano, ou l'orchestre de ce lumineux enregistrement. Malgré cette obscurité, le morceau "Wagnigni Djin Nonnon" est l'un des plus grand morceau tradi-moderne que j'ai eu l'occasion d'entendre. La face A est tout aussi axtraordinaire, avec une Pachanga dont la mélancolie est l'impression du soleil Béninois.
