{135} Antoine DOUGBE -EDA- 001 ♫ listen +++

NON ! Publié par Calumbinho 

For the very first time a Jam Magica's aficionado *****Calumbinho*****
signs this article. Big up my friend from Kazakhstan !

I have been fascinated with Antoine Dougbé ever since I heard “Nou akue non hwlin me sin kon” in a Voodoo Funk mix. There is always something special about Antoine Dougbé’s collaborations with Poly Rythmo. His songs are often labeled “cavacha”, but I don’t think his thing sounds all that Congolese or East African – to me it just sounds Dougbé. I also like the fact that, even though Poly Rythmo had such charismatic musicians, they apparently had no qualms about putting their talent to the service of Dougbé’s peculiar style. I wonder if true musicianship also involves putting a check on your ego when a special visitor comes around.

If I’m not mistaken, in Analog Africa’s “Legends of Benin”, Samy Ben Redjeb rescued for us the whole B-side to Dougbé’s self-titled EDA 001 lp (among other jewels). Now ZjAK gives us from his collection the whole A-side, which contains two Afro-Latin tracks and an intense “cavacha” with great quirky & spacey keyboards and urgent, intricate, afrobeatish drumming, and which I find at least as rewarding as the reissued tracks from the B-side. THANKS SO MUCH, ZjAK!!

J'adore , c'est bien toi ... passionné , question humaines intelligentes , texte concentré et clair. On perçoit le sourire pas loin. Du bon Calumbinho !Et la réponse à ta question est qu'il ne chantait pas, je ne sais plus où Samy a donné l'info. Une interdiction due à son rôle dans le vaudou.
Je suis TRèS heureux de te publier MERCI à toi.
