A. K. Salim Afro-Soul / Drum Orgy (1965)

Prestige
  • 1. afrika (africa)
  • 2. ngomba ya tempo (elephant dance)
  • 3. kumuamkia mzulu (salute to a zulu)
  • 4. pepo za sarari (trade winds)

Incredible! This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks -- similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified. Harcore Afrocentric rhythms. DEEP
