'Mèdaho' is the debut album from Brooklyn based Afro-funksters Kaleta & Super Yamba Band. Fronted by Afrobeat and Juju veteran Leon Ligan-Majek a.k.a. Kaleta, a native of Benin Republic, 'Mèdaho' draws on the group's shared reverence for the raw,
psychedelic Afro-funk sound that captivated Kaleta as a music loving kid in 1970s Benin. 'Mèdaho' means "big brother," "elder" or "teacher" and is dedicated to Kaleta's late brother Ligan-Ozavino Pascal who introduced him to funk and soul music at a very early age. Kaleta's guitar chops would later earn him decades of recording and international touring with Fela Kuti,
King Sunny Ade, and more recently Lauryn Hill. Now based in New York City, Kaleta has taken the reins and become the frontman for Super Yamba Band, a group known for their sweaty Brooklyn dance parties and original Afro-funk influenced compositions.
Mèdaho explores some of the rarest grooves and psychedelic sounds from classic era Benin and Nigeria and brings the highly danceable music back to life!

Also available: MEDAHO (LP).
