More Info

"Hypnotic selection of rare field recordings from Ethiopia, Ghana, Zare, Togo, Dahomey and Ivory Coast. All of the tracks were recorded by various occidental ethnologists between 1960 and 1973. The music of this collection is really crazy and rarely heard: handmade instruments and surprising vocals sound resolutely modern, so that some songs may be confused with early industrial tones. The cover by Jean Attali, reflects perfectly the strange atmosphere that emerges from this unbelievable set." [label info]
