Chaino, African Percussion Safari

Jungle Echoes (LP)

Label: Black Sweat Records

Format: LP

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In stock


Finally reissued, legendary Afro-drum insanity by this unique/sensational drummer.."The story of Chaino is something between truth and fiction, you can read on the linear notes, it remembers Tarzan! Originally released in 1959 contains nine unique tracks: tremendously energetic, absolutely mind-blowing to this day and – here comes the intrinsic twist – glaringly sexualized and suggestive, if not via their track titles, then because of the moaning females and groaning male chants. This tribalism has never been heard in this boldly audacious clarity, as the Polynesian Exotica genre at the time was all about the transfiguration of danger-free lush green jungles, the paradisiac Tropics or the yearning for the open sea and far away places in Asia or Old Europe. Chaino cuts through this phantasmagoria and keeps things terrifyingly real and acidic: there are no classic music instruments to be found, only a steelpan-like device and a few marimbas are included in a track or two, all other melodies derive from Chaino's chants and uttered gibberish. His work features the widest array of condensed exotic percussion instruments there ever was. Jungle Echoes is a masterpiece."
