I’m on my way back from Africa, 2 day stop in Paris to say hi to friends and family, and out of the blue comes Mory Touré from Bamako, who’s in France for the first time. He’s invited by RFI to do a radio internship here, and being the wheeler dealer he is, introduced me to Michel Pinheiro, a Beninese musician living between Paris and Cotonou. Michel recorded an incredible salsa album with was only released in Benin, with a very limited digital release in France! Very strange… Michel is also Tiken Jah Fakoly‘s trombone player. He was very excited by Akwaaba, who will put out his full length album early 2009.
