An essential compilation from one of Benin’s leading groups, formed in 1968. The group’s rare alchemy of scorched funk and driving Afrobeat didn’t just defy a repressive political system; across fifty studio albums, it revealed a group infinitely worthy of the world stage. The album is a lean and supreme compilation, and a definitive point of entry for the West African shapeshifters. It delivers on urgent, genre-flipping finesse and is a masterclass in conga-led repetition and call-and-response. The album is mostly sung in French or his native Fon tongue. The most emphatic cuts on the album marry the group’s obvious love of locked, four-on-the-floor beats with Sato and Sakpata, traditional Vodun rhythms common between different West African nations.
