The King of Benin Urban Groove 1972 - 80

A 13 track afrobeat album (1h 8m 17s) — released October 13th 2009 on Soundway Records Ltd
Orchestre Poly Rythmo have kicked off their first ever tour outside of Africa and will be performing as a twelve piece at London's Barbican on September 27th as well as dates in France, Holland and Belgium earlier in September. The band have received considerable press coverage in the UK and France surrounding the tour and are expected to tour again in 2010. This collection reflects their many poly-rythmic moods - a mixture of hard afro-funk, driving afro-beat, deep afro-latin and Cuban grooves with a unique flavour that ruled the dance floors of 70s urban Benin.
