Sounds of Benin

Yedenou Adjahoui is a famous musician from Avrankou, the town where Jen and I live. This statue sits outside of the youth center dedicated to his memory. Here is a link to his music. This is traditional Beninese music for the Goun and Fon ethnic groups. Music like this is played almost non-stop by the young and old; it is the background to our lives in Benin.
