Togbe Adjos – Maman Tchamba

When reading tags about vodun jazz, a reggae vibe wasn’t exactly what I was expecting.  Still, Togbe Adjos produces an album mixing the rhythms of the Caribbean with those of his native Benin.  This is a mellow but lively album which wouldn’t feel out of place among that massive stack of Trojan Records you have laying around your listening room.  West Africa is perhaps the hottest place in world music these days.  It’s wonderful to see Benin’s musicians receiving more and more recognition.
