Music from Benin – Prince Rambo

I choose this video clip of Prince Rambo alias Mathieu Ahlo Glele , because it shows a lot of beautyful folkoric costumes of this country and because in the french description of the you tube video they say ” Glele  s’inscrit dans la longue tradition des chanteurs à voix et les légendes de la chanson béninoise” what would translated say that thius musician has subscribed his work to the traditional chant and legends of Benin .

Here is his song “Assassin”
