Vaudou Game is a contemporary live band of six members playing an authentic Togolese funk based on voodoo chant scales, and led by Peter Solo, a singer and composer born in Aneho-Glidji (Togo), birthplace of the Guin tribe and place of the voodoo culture. He was raised with those traditional values of human and environmental respect. Apiafo is a 12-track album, entirely recorded, mixed and mastered with old analog tapes, and played with vintage instruments, recalling the sound of bands like Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou or El Rego. Peter Solo invited his uncle, Roger Damawuzan, famous pioneer of the '70s soul scene in Togo, to sing on "Pas Contente" & "Wrong Road." The result of their collaboration is without a doubt two amazing future dancefloor classics. The idea of integrating these haunting lines, sung in honor of the Divinities, into an energetic '70s Afro-funk style, was, in Peter Solo's mind, an obvious extension of the analogy he found between the voodoo tradition and trance-inducers such as soul, funk, as well as the rhythm 'n blues of James Brown or Otis Redding. Vaudou Game will be touring all over the world to promote this new Afro-soul classic album.
