Gale warning in force for all areas. Waves may rise rapidly in squalls. Northwest 10 knots, rising to 20 knots gusting 30 knots early afternoon and to 25 knots gusting 35 knots early evening, and possibly gusting to 55 knots in squalls. Northwest rising to 40 knots gusting 60 knots late this evening. Take funk, soul, psychedelia and rumba, mix it up with a thick dose of heavy local rhythms and throw everything in a Benin grinder. The brew is then mixed up with hypnotic Farfisa solos, gritty guitar riffs, distorted bass lines, warm horns and the result, of exorcizing proportion, will lead to frenetic body movements. Some people bang their heads, others jerk their feet or feel an urgent need to get up and start shaking their hips. One thing is common, though, to everyone who submits their ears to a spinning record by the mighty Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou: you simply can’t stand still. And this new compilation is proof of that – here are 14 funky tracks by the legendary ensemble from Benin that has been deemed as "West-Africa’s best kept secret," or as the "The D.N.A. of voodoo groove". Thanks for tuning in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
