“The ’60s hitmakers Orchestre Poly-Rythmo lead the revival of Afrobeat” – Time Magazine

Undisputed kings of voodoo music, Benin’s Orchestre Poly-Rythmo are, at five decades, the oldest active African orchestra and one of Africa’s most prolific of all time, publishing hundreds of EPs and dozens of albums throughout the 60s and 70s as rediscovered in recent years by cult labels Analog Africa and Soundway.

Blending traditional Beninese music, American soul and funk, Nigerian afrobeat, Congolese rumba, Ghanaian high-life, French pop and Afro-Cuban rhythms in their own unique style, their magnificent live show and unparalleled musical output shows them truly worthy of their full name: Le Tout Puissant Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou (The All Powerful Polyrhtyhmic Orchestra of Cotonou).

After the success of their 2016 Madjiafalou album on prolific indie/afro label Because Music (Amadou + Mariam/ Manu Chao/ Metronomy/ Justic /Major Lazer), the band are back on the road for their first full UK festival tour since 2011, celebrating 50 years together and accompanied by the release of a “best of” album in June 2018.

Joining them will be fast rising afro-influenced quintet Minyanta, who recently stole the show at KOKO opening for Romare.
