Les Tout-Puissants

08/02/2018WATCH: Benin's Tout-Puissant Orchestre Poly-Rythmo Perform Live in Berlin (Full Show)

Back in June of last year we first introduced Benin's 'Almighty Polyrhythmic Orchestra of Cotonou' to our readers, on the occasion of their 2016-released "Madjafalao" LP (Because Music). That same month the largest and officially the longest active African formation performed live in Berlin for the first time ever, adding to their steadily rising acclaim and rocking the crowds at YAAM Berlin with lively and equally virtuosic aplomb.

Today, we are excited to present you the live recording of that night, which you can enjoy below. What more is there to say about this impressive artistic presence and musical showmanship other than, 'wow'!

Then again, there must be a reason this formation has been around for 50-something years and counting.
