Poly Rythmo De Cotonou – Zero + Zero = Zero
I think Frank’s travel and digging reports played quite a role for my growing interest in West African music. I always liked the mixes he put online but at the same time I was not too confident to ever find any of these records as I don’t live in Western Africa and I don’t have the money to pay ebay prices. Today I was lucky at a record fair though. I didn’t find too much info online about this album. Everything that I found out is that it’s not an African but an American pressing and it usually seems to have a heavy price tag. I couldn’t even find out the release date. However it is a great album. Check out the beautiful Afro funk tune “Ne te faches pas” and the less funky but equally great “Aldin gbanzon“.
