Malombo :: Pele Pele

"Ex Africa Semper Nova Aliquid" / Out of Africa, Always Something New

Picked this up on the cheap at a shop in LA a few weeks back, Malombo's 1976 Pele Pele LP via Atlantic. Comprised of guitarist Phillip Tabane and his nephew, percussionist Gabriel Thobejane, the album is a 40 minute, at times hypnotic, fusion of South African jazz in the Mboube tradition. Rounded out with electronic effects and a heaping of humid atmosphere, the results are an intoxicating fîªte.
