Midst the glut of ‘big’ gigs this month comes this most welcome relief. As always, Choice Cuts deliver the considered global delights of world music. This time it’s Benin’s best. The Orchestro Poly-Rythmo formed back in 1968 and boast over 50 LPs in their catalogue. Mixing “vodou funk” and soukous, Afrobeat along with Latin rhythms, Donal Dineen says their “songs tend to burst into action with all the excitement of opening night at the funfair.”
Expect some summer time sweats to melt your sugar.
