I previously posted some Tchinkoumé music (here), northern Benin rhythm based on water drums.
Here is a renewal of this traditional music made by Stanislas Tohon: he created the Tchink System style, a actual (late 70s) version of Tchinkoumé, based on same water drums patern rythms, but played by modern instruments.
This album has been produced by Aboudou Lassissi, recorded in studio Otodi (Lome), mixed in the USA. I guess the release date is around 1978-79.
