Amanaz - Africa (1975 Zambian Psychedelic Fuzz Rock)


RARIDADE AFRICANA!! BANDA VINDA ZÂMBIA FORMADA EM 1973, CUJO LP CONTA COM TRÊS MUSICAS CANTADAS COM A LIBGUA NATIVA E NOVE EM INGLÊS!! ESSA NA VERDADE É CONSIDERADA A VERSÃO AFRICANA DE CREAM, JIMI HENDRIX, JAMES BROWN E FUNKEDELIC!! GUITARRA FUZZ E UM SOM MUITO BOM QUE CERTAMENTE SERÁ UMA SURPRESA A TODOS OS ENVENENADOS!! A SONORIDADE É UMA COMBINAÇÃO DE ELEMENTOS PSYCH ROCK, AFROBEAT, GROOVE PSYCH, PERCUSSÃO, BLUES, FUNKY E SOUL!! UM ALBUM DE ROCK PSICODÉLICO MUITO BOM!! VENENO AFRICANO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!

Amanaz was formed in 1973. 3 songs are in the native language Bemba, and 9 songs in English, recorded in Kitwe, the 3rd biggest city in Zambia. Musically is goes in the same direction as Blo, The Witch and Question Mark, but this album is more mellow and stoned with amazing fuzz guitar all over which sounds like an African version of early Cream. This is simply a gorgeous album. Combining elements of psych-rock with afrobeat percussion drones, bluesy and soul!
------------------------------------
Now-Again licensed this essential album from Zambia’s 70s “Zamrock” scene from the Amanaz’s vocalist Keith Kabwe. Africa is a pinnacle in global psychedelic grooves – as influenced by Jimi Hendrix as James Brown, as indebted to the Velvet Underground as to Buddy Miles. Half of the album is sung in English, the other half in the native Zambian language Bemba. Of course, fuzz guitars, stoned chants and funky drums predominate.
