  ‘African Scream Contest’ is the third release by the Analog Africa label. The project initially took off in August 2005 when label owner and vinyl collector Samy Ben Redjeb arrived in Cotonou, Benin, “without any special expectations, just hoping to lay my hands on few good records - what I found in the process cannot really be described in words". This first trip was followed by eight more to the region. Thirty months and few thousand records later Analog Africa proudly presents this 14-track compilation. Redjeb conducted 16 interviews in various cities in Benin and Togo with artists, producers and sound engineers to reconstruct the history of the 70s music scene for the 44 pages booklet which also features many rare photographs directly received from the artists. Delve into the forgotten raw and psychedelic Afro sounds from 70s Benin and Togo and experience the African Scream Contest. very, very limited copies in, and this might notcome in anymore.... Tip!
The cultural and spiritual riches of traditional Beninian music had an immense impact on the sound of Benin’s modern music. Benin is the birth place of Vodun (or, as it is known in the West, Voodoo), and some of the rhythms used during traditional rituals - Sakpata, Sato, Agbadja, Tchenkoumé and many others - were fused to Soul and Latin music as early as the mid-1960s and later to Funk.
