Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou at Lincoln Center July 11

Benin's longtime champions will be making their first visit to NYC on July 11th as part of Lincoln Center's July music festival.

Orchestre Poly-Rythmo are one of those great world music phenoms...the kind of thang that punks and yuppies can all dig together...a killer mix of hard voodoo funk rhythms, afro-cuban, highlife, rumba and even soukous. This is a grand opportunity.

Here are the web details.

And for all your OPR needs, try here.

Analog Africa (their reissue label) can be found here and here.

    Peace & Rythm is on my favorite blogs list too.
    Just wait for the concert in Sète, south of "douce France". Who will be the first to post about TPOP on stage ? Could be you ...
