A quick review of this album that I have been listening to today on my Ipod and which I found on the Awesome Tapes From Africa blog. There is not very much info on the web about Sagbohan Danialou except that he comes from Benin and is or was pretty big there. He has been in several African groups, Black Santiago being one that I have heard. This is a pleasant enough compilation of African pop with the usual African sounding rhythms and some more traditional sounding vocal harmonic sections to his songs. I enjoyed it playing during the day as I was working but it didn't really draw me in, but this music becomes more rewarding with more concentrated listening, picking up the more subtle shifts in his songs and the different styles he has explored over his fairly long career. My rating 3.5/5
