Les Grands Génies de Cotonou


I ended the year with a totally unknown band for me. "les Grands Génies" recorded this single in the early 70's. Side A, "Tche We Atcheke" , is a terrible Sato rhythm. I know nothing about the composer, Joseph Devi, and even less about the label "Daho-Disco Ambiance". Excellent year 2012, it will be full of surprises from Benin.


Je termine l'année avec un orchestre totalement inconnu pour moi. "Les Grands Génies" ont enregistré ce disque vers le début des années 70. La face A "Tche We Atcheke" est un terrible rythme Sato. Je ne connais rien non plus sur le compositeur, Joseph Sevi, et encore moins sur le label "Daho-Disco Ambiance". Excellente année 2012, elle sera pleine de surprises béninoises...
