Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou (From Benin, W. Africa)

The greatest band in Benin's history, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, is back. The legendary West African band was founded in 1968 and has included some of the most influential and virtuosic African musicians ever to play a note.

Similar to the Rail Band of Mali and Afrika 70 of Nigeria, OPR were superstars throughout West Africa in the 1970s. With an exquisite groove, a homemade Afrobeat funk that combined vodoun (voodoo) rituals, Latin music and James Brown-influenced jams, they played with the likes of Manu Dibango, Fela Kuti and Gnonnas Pedro.
