Vibro Success Intercontinental Orchestra was an extraordinary group from the Central African Republic, founded by the sax player Rodolphe 'Beckers' Bekpa, also known as Master Békers, in the late 60's. The band achieved surprising domestic success after Beckers introduced the first drums to the Congolese Rumba rhythm. His innovation proved to be wildly popular so they were hired as the resident band of "ciel d'Afrique au Km5", a night club in Bangui. The club was renowned as the temple of the Olympic Réal football team's fans and that visibility propelled them into becoming the official national orchestra.
Side A is totally dominated by the long-incredible psych Afrobeat track called Drunkard. Almost 18 minutes of magic, a musical trip with great sax solos & breaks, a warm and deep voice, with masterful vibes imprinted in the grooves that make you fly into an hypnotic, parallel dimension.
A1 - Drunkard
On Side B we have two tracks that are more like other Vibro Success Orchestra productions done for Ben Clover , dance floor soukous which can bring some proper Fyah in worldwide Tropical Dancefloors. Listen to "Marine Yanzoni" and you will not be disappointed!!! You'll definitely love the break at around 1.30 min., with the crazy change in rhythm and an explosion of typical soukous guitars and horns!
