Chenard Walcker - Vodoun
fsz034 | 40:29 | april 2005

"Vodoun" plays on the contrast between soulful voices from Benin and the porn grooves of Chenard Walcker. The sound is rough, close to saturation. So Faders up !

Chenard went to Benin (Western Africa) years ago. He bought there some tapes by two traditionnal singers, Le Roi Alokpon and Alekpehanhou. All the voices of "Vodoun" were sampled from these two tapes. Please check out the originals. Free Sample Zone shares both of them :

Le Roi Alokpon
Alekpehanhou, Roi du Zinli Rénové

Benin is where is practiced the rite of Vodoun. It's also historically the place from where the slaves were sent to America. That's how Vodoun was imported to Haiti, and it evolved to Voodoo.
