Description

Madjafalao on CD

With half a century of existence, Beninese band Poly-Rythmo can easily be considered a legend of African music, alongside Fela Kuti and Tinariwen. Drawing their name from the extensive mix of influences that forged their sound (American soul and funk, Nigerian Afro-beat, French chanson, Congolese rumba, etc.), they have been impressively productive, releasing hundreds of EPs and dozens of albums from 1969 to 1980 alone. In 2014, orchestra conductor Florent Mazzoleni visited the band and decided to produce Madjafalao, recorded in the legendary African studio Satel. With it's warm tone and mastery of rhythm variations, Madjafalao ("Watch Out") will instantly become a classic of Afro-beat and Poly-Rythmo will share their warm joie de vivre with thousands of people. CD version comes in a digipack with a 12 page poster booklet.
