Le Super Borgou de Parakou - The Bariba Sound
(CD/2xLP) Analog Africa n°11 AACD 071/AALP071, 2012-03-27

The Analog Africa label continues his digging of West African vinyl treasures from the 60s and 70s and this new compilation is another masterful must-listen for all the ears looking out for some tropical-but-different kind of sounds. This time the musical travel goes into North East Benin (called Dahomey at the time of those recordings), to the city of Parakou, with the Super Borgou de Parakou and their unique Bariba Sound, a blend of influences from imported psychedelic soul, funk & R&B, with traditional Bariba and Dendi music, orientalese melodies, afrobeat, highlife, rumba and pachanga. The music is like nothing we've heard before and as always the booklet is like a full story with lots of photos and scans. Another absolute must-have on vinyl from Samy Ben Redjeb, who we'll be interviewing for a special audio podcast very soon so stay connected!
