Orchestre SUPER BORGOU de Parakou


I enjoy posting this record full of northern Benin's character. I do not know the year of recording nor the label "Impressions Sonores du Nord" (Sound Impressions from the North) but it sounds good, it sounds really good. Side A, "An Nam Kofi Taba" is a pure afrobeat rhythm and Side B xith "Weboro Senise Sourou" is sublime pachenga. Both master pieces composed by the great Moussa Mama. For more pleasure with Super Borgou take this flight.


J'ai plaisir à poster ce disque plein de caractère nordique du Bénin. Je ne connais pas l'année de cet enregistrement ni le label "Impressions Sonores du Nord", ça sonne bien je vous le dis ça sonne très bien. La Face A, "Nam An Kofi Taba" est un pur rythme afrobeat, et la Face B, avec "Weboro Senise Sourou" est un sublime pachenga. Ces deux morceaux sont composés par le grand Moussa Mama. Pour plus de plaisir avec le Super Borgou, prenez ce vol.

Ça c'est vraiment, mais vraiment du costaud. Nan Koffi Taba me rappelle certains morceaux de groupes plus anciens (comme le Super Star de Ouidah?), mais avec une touche funky. Merci!

Incredible album, thanks so much for posting. As a teacher currently living in the north of benin, ive been listening to a lot of the beninese music you've posted and I'm curious: Do you live in Benin? Did you at one point? Where do you find this stuff?
