Release Date:08/28/2015;Notes:Nine previously unreleased and rare tracks recorded between 1972 and 1981 by the amazing Roger Damawuzan, also known as the James Brown from Lome, backed by the tremendous Les As du Benin orchestra. Born in 1952 in Aneho, Togo, the king of Gazo (a traditional rhythm) is one of the most popular singers of his native country. He started his career in 1968 and released his first record in 1972 with his now-classic hit Wait for Me. From 1972 to the early '80s, alongside Les As du Benin, he worked more than five days a week at the seaside Hotel Tropicana, practicing and perfecting his afro-soul sound. During this period Damawuzan and the orchestra also recorded many tracks, sometimes in Ghana at the famous Philips studio, sometimes during live sessions for big events in the Palais des Congres de Lome and Studio Otodi in Lome, but always live and analog. At the time of this release Roger Damawuzan lives in Lome in 2014 he was the featured singer on the smash hit Pas Contente by Vaudou Game (HC 029EP, HC 032CD/LP) and performed with the band at major European festivals.
