Gnonnas Pedro & His Dadjes Band – La Musica en Verité

This is from Analog Africa‘s latest compilation of incredible/obscure/forgotten 1970s West African dancefloor masterpieces Legends of Benin. We play sweet, deep throwbacks like this one every Monday 7PM to 8PM Mudd Up radio with DJ Rupture on WFMU 91.1 fm (listen from the archives)– stream, or get podcast. “La Musica en Verité” is the amazing closing track on Legends of Benin. It’s an inviting and inspiring jam, calling you, telling you to get on the floor and shake your bones a little before the party ends, but I’ll manage to squeeze it in among all the fresh, happening raps early @ NYT9 this Friday!
