Biography (Wikipedia)

Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Cotonou are a band from Benin, which plays afrobeat, funk, soukous and other styles, often based on Vodun rhythms.

The band were first formed in 1966 under the name Orchestre Poly-Disco in the coastal town of Cotonou. They recorded around 500 songs between the late 1960s and early 1980s, playing a variety of musical styles for various Beninese record labels. Their debut album was originally released in 1973.

A compilation of their back catalogue released on the Popular African Music label in 2003 was followed by Kings of Benin on Soundway Records the following year and a series of compilations on Analog Africa from 2008, bringing the band to greater global attention. This interest led the band to reform, tour internationally from 2009 and release new album Cotonou Club in 2011.
