FRANKOSUN & THE FAMILY, RAHASANA

 

FRANKOSUN AND THE FAMILY
Frankosun and the Family is a fresh and fine-tuned afrobeat orchestra
based in Helsinki, Finland. The band was founded by Oladele Franck
Koumolou, who was born in the voodoo heartland - the Republic of
Benin.
Since 2013, Frankosun and the Family has performed in numerous
festivals in the Nordic countries and captured listeners' hearts with
their unique style of music.
Frankosun and the Family mixes the 1970s and 1980s afrobeat of Benin and Nigeria with relaxed elements of afrofunk and afrorock, echoes of Finnish folk music as well as rhythms from the lead

singer’s homeland and the Nago tribe of Benin.
Our blend of music is energetic with an intense set that puts a smile on everyone's face. The beats
are designed to capture the mind, soul and body of our audience so that even the slowest listeners
will get up and dance.
