Poly-Rhythm Orchestra de Cotonou Dahomey with Gbeti Madjro

Here is a music video from a Scopitone Jukebox, with "Gbeti Madjro" from the compilation "African Scream Contest" released on Analog Africa Records.

Scopitone Jukeboxes were prevalent in the 1960's at dance bars and clubs apparently only in the USA and some EU countries.

"Based on technology developed during World War II,[2] color 16 mm film clips with a magnetic soundtrack were designed to be shown in a specially designed jukebox. The first Scopitones were made in France."
