Honoro Avolonto "Same" 1983

Avolonto Honore started as a conga player in Benin's now legendary T.P. Orchestro Poly-Rytmo (and other bands as well) in 1969. This is his fourth solo effort, recorded in 1983 (sounds like the 70s tough) with the different vocalists that are mentioned on the front cover. The guitar player  Adjadohoun Maximus made an incredible work on the last track; the nine minutes  Tin Lon Non, hypnotic afrofunk with edgy psychedelic guitar work. The A-side of the record includes Honore's own take on the highlife music. Groovy!
