Following to this former post, I wanted to share with you for today “Okpo Videa Bassouo“, an irresistible bouncing Afrobeat Funk track with Latin flavors, syncopated drums, furious horns & guitar riffs, one of the first recordings from the Beninese legendary singer & composer Gnonnan “Gnonnas Pedro” Sossou Pierre Kouassivi, backed here by his band “Panchos de Cotonou” (that included several other great Beninese musicians such as Theophile “El Rego” Do Rego), and out on the mythical record label “Disques Tropiques – Satel” – Enjoy !
