Legendary African Orchestra celebrating 50 years together

“The ’60s hitmakers Orchestre Poly-Rythmo lead the revival of Afrobeat” Time
“Angular melodies, punchy horn lines, psychedelic guitar, an injenction of funk and insistent, powerful percussion-beaten out on drums, gourds, bells and shakers. It’s music you can’t ignore.” The Guardian

Undisputed kings of voodoo music, Benin’s Orchestre Poly-rythmo are, at five decades, the oldest active African orchestra and one of Africa’s most prolific of all time, publishing hundreds of EPs and dozens of albums throughout the 60s and 70s as rediscovered in recent years by cult labels Analog Africa and Soundway.

Blending traditional Beninese music, American soul and funk, Nigerian afrobeat, Congolese rumba, Ghanaian high-life, French pop and Afro-Cuban rhythms in their own unique style, their magnificent live show and unparalleled musical output shows them truly worthy of their full name: Le Tout Puissant Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou (The All Powerful Polyrhtyhmic Orchestra of Cotonou).
