M. Zalla (Piero Umiliani) - Africa LP


Sold Out

Label: Dialogo

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 "Sortil├Ęge," 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.
