El Rego et Ses Commandos
Hot damn! Charlie is slaying me on the afro/tropical tip at the moment so I just gotta come back with a little afro-heeeeeet for you all...
Now here's a tight little 45 from Cotonou, Benin (previously Dahomey) and features band leader Theophile Do Rego aka El Rego on Contra-Bass alongside his new Ghanese soul singer named Eddy Black Power. Earlier playing latin-influenced sounds as a member of Gnonnas Pedros 'Los Panchos' group, Djobime is one of El Rego's earliest forays into funky territory and it represents his heaviest work in my opinion.
