Burundi Black (1971)

Ce disque est relativement inclassable du fait de l’annĂ©e de sa rĂ©alisation, et du fait qu’il a Ă©tĂ© produit par un pianiste français, de formation classique, sur la base de rythmes et percussions originaires du Burundi. Sur des samples extraits depuis un disque ethnographique, il a ajoutĂ© ses arrangements avec guitare Rock et piano.

Mais surtout, les tambours de ce titre ont eu un impact important sur certains groupes classés dans les genres Punk, Post-Punk ou New Wave, comme Adam & the Ants.

A notĂ© que ces mĂȘmes percussions ont Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ©es (samplĂ©es) par Joni Mitchell, Def Leppard et les Beastie Boys.

Does anybody remember this track from 1971 (here the 12″ version)? Based on a track from French Ocora’s ethnic recordings “Musique du Burundi” (1968), the guitar and keyboard were added by a French musician in the UK. These beats served as rhythmic foundation for many tracks later released by Adam and the Ants or Bow Wow Wow.
