Alekpehanhou, Roi du Zinli Rénové
acm013 | 49:26 | may 2005

I bought this tape, along with a few others, in some music shop of Cotonou. Cotonou, the main city in Benin (West Africa), features most of the self-produced labels of the country.

This soulful music is by a traditionnal artist called "Alekpehanhou, Roi du Zinli Rénové" (Alekpehanhou, King of the Renewed Zinli). Zinli is a traditionnal rhythm from south Benin which is still played nowadays, along with Soyoyo, Tchink system, Juju...

Artwork was adapted for the CD jewel case. I've used most of these tapes for the voices of the cut & paste Vodoun album.
