Details / Info

Rare album by famous Beninese band Black Santiago led by Ignace De Souza. His orchestra was very popular in the 70's and early 80's, competing with As Du Benin and Poly-Rythmo. This LP recorded in Lomé, Togo was arranged by Congolese musician Dizzy Mandjeku (Magwana, Zaiko, African All-Stars...) adding a Zaire-style Sukus touch to the LP. Includes some nice uptempo tracks like "L'Homme est compliqué" and the Afro-Cuban style "Fidélité".
Sleeve has some aging and dirt but with no major defaults. Record shows some scuffs and soft hairlines, nothing too bad but it plays with constant surface noise.
