l’International Avohou Pierre
et le poly Rythmo de Cotonou

Avohou Pierre, front

From Benin we’ve got this sweet slice of vinyl, it contains
the work of Avohou Pierre. He appears with the great
TP Poly Rythmo de Cotonou. I don’t know who is playing
guitar on this album but I do know it is very good. For
more information about this group maybe we should
turn to Oro, the blog that has most of this stuff.
Meantime listen to Avohou Pierre..

    Solo Guitarist is the late Zoundegnon Bernard Papillon, may his soul rest in peace.

    Great gadzooks, this has to be the single best blog for Afrobeat that I have ever found. How did I never come across it before VIA any incidental searches?

      ..not really true, afrobeat is a style you will not find a whole lot here..
      other African styles, yes, much more..
