Acid Jazz Records continue their exclusive licensing agreement with AlbarikaStore, the legendary record label that defined the sound of Benin and influenced the entire region of West Africa and beyond. Recorded and issued in 1974,Le Satois one of the earliest releases on the Albarikalabel and it is also one of the deepest. Sato is the term for the traditional rhythms that soundtrack Vodun (Voodoo) rituals and ceremonies in Benin. Performance of Sato is reserved for these scared rites, which evoke the spirits of the dead and can last for several days and attract hundreds of people. Sato rhythms cannot be played outside of Vodun. A large ceremonial Sato drum is used, which measured over 1.5m in height. This drum is played using wooden stick beaters, the drummer dancing while playing. The Sato drummers are supported by percussionists andother drummers playing smaller drums. Together, they create unique, layered, tranceinducing poly-rhythms.
