Steve Abeni, Eugène Togbé and Kouton Kouassi play songs and rhythms from Benin, West Africa.

The trio has its roots in Grand Popo, on the lovely seaside coast of Benin, where rhythm is a part of daily life. Together they play a mixture of traditional songs and songs of their own, accompanied by local percussions and guitar. The songs include traditional fables with lessons to learn about how to do well in life, be a good person, and succeed together with your fellow human beings, and be of good in your community. And of course, the songs also tell tales about love and infatuation.
