Edio (Part 1)

Edio (Part 2)

There are times when I am inspired to write. And then… Well, it’s like pulling teeth.

If you are somewhat familiar with the music of Benin – formerly known as Dahomey, you should own a copy of Analog Africa‘s African Scream Contest (If not, stop what you are doing, run – don’t walk – to your local record store and purchase it. Right now. Go on. Get.). Besides the closing track “Oya Ka Jojo”, you will find an interview with Atchadé Joseph in the extensive liner notes.

For further information, as well as a number of great tracks, head over to ORO (Here, here, here, here, here and here.).

Catalog number VG EP 0007 on Les Volcans. Released 1977.


Thanks for the music!
