Hot Casa Records presents Dans le Tchink Système, an Afro-soul treasure by Stanislas Tohon, the soul brother of Benin. Tohon was born in 1955 in Abomey, Benin, and, at the age of nine, began a musical career that would produce over thirty albums and many collaborations with such greats as Africando vocalist Gnonnas Pedro. Influenced by traditional tchinkoumé music, Tohon developed his own musical style called "Tchink Système," a mix of modern soul and Beninese traditional rhythms. Tohon recorded Dans le Tchink Système in Kumasi, Ghana, in 1979, with the incredible Vis-à-Vis Band of Ghana. The album is presented here in full, along with "Africa," the B-side of Tohon's rare debut 7", recorded the year before with Ghanaian band Les Satelites. Sung in Fon, Tohon's native language, this album is a soulful call for peace and unity in Africa and an exemplary collection of Afro-soul music. This incredibly hard-to-find record is now available again, remastered and limited to 1000 copies.
