Legends of Benin

A collection of super-rare and highly-danceable masterpieces recorded between 1969-81 by four legendary composers from Benin: Antoine Dougbe, El Rego et Ses Commandos, Honore Avolonto, and Gnonnas Pedro & His Dadjes Band. A thick brew of Acbadja, Soul, Cavacha, Funk, Afrobeat, and Afro-Latin sounds, all mixed with heavy traditional rhythms – a distinctive Beninese sound!
