M. Zalla (Piero Umiliani) - Africa LP
Release Date: November 5th, 2021.
Piero Umiliani's Africa was released in January 1972, a years-ahead record that includes the prog-tinged rhythm of "Africa To-Day," the "fourth world" inspiration coming from Jon Hassell's "Green Dawn," the "exotic" references in Martin Denny's style ("Lonely Village," "Echos"), the electronic new wave (hearing is believing!) of "Sortilège," the folk music ("Rite," "Folk-Tune"). An incredible album summarizes sounds and styles that will make the fortune of much more celebrated and popular musicians and artists.
