Noriel Vilela – 16 Toneladas

If a band is going to make a remake of a popular song, it’s important to make the song your own and in my opinion, these two song remakes not only are owned by their respective groups but are better than the originals.


Los Rockin’ Devils – Gloria


Orchestre Polyrythmo – Min We Tun So

Another fantastic tune from Orchestre Polyrythmo, this one a bit more on the downtempo, melancholy side than the song I featured by them previously. (please click the link to see one of the best videos ever posted on this blog)

More on the band from Discogs:

The T.P. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou hails from the West African nation of Benin. The “T.P.” stands for the French “Tout Puissant”, which means “All Mighty”. The band was formed in 1966 and still records to this day, although band members have changed along the way. Their output has been extremely prolific numbering upwards of 50 LPs and a hundred 45s.
As their name implies, the music relies on a blend of rhythmic persussive elements. It draws from the French heritage of Benin along with the influence of their anglophone neighbors like Nigeria and Ghana. These influences and rhythmic elements form the backdrop for varied styles they play, a mix ranging from afrobeat, highlife, jazz, soul, rhumba and latin music. Tracks are sung in either French or their native Fon tongue.
