Tonye Ye Vena

My introduction to Orchestre Discafric-Band De Cotonou was the song “Houiou Djin Nan Zon Aklumon” that was included on Analog Africa‘s first volume of African Scream Contest – which if you do not own a copy of, you need to rectify that immediately. But the extensive liner notes of that compilation do not offer much information about the band.

Orchestre Discafric-Band De Cotonou recorded nine singles, six for the Discafric label. This is the only recording the did with Allognon Degbevi. The song of the flip side of this single is without Discafric-Band. He also recorded six other singles as well as an album – many for the Togolese label International Radisco.

If you have any further information, please leave it in the comment section below.

Catalog number D. F. 003 on Discafric of Cotonou Dahomey – now Benin. No release date listed.
