Orchestre Essogbe de Porto-Novo


Je présente un nouvel orchestre Béninois sur le blog, Orchestre Essogbe de Porto-Novo. Ce groupe de la fin des années 60 joue de la Rumba et du Boléro, des rythmes typiques de l'époque que je trouve souvent sans relief. Le disque est édité par le label Nigerian Dayo West African Records.

Awesome! What instrument are they playing on Bon Voyage? It sounds like an amplified thumb piano like Konono No 1!
