referencing Love Drums From The Ghetto, LP, Album, CU-20001, 20001
An extraordinary album that traces a direct line of musical flight from the poorest enclaves of seventies New York across the ocean to the African motherland.
Funky as the proverbial mosquito's tweeter and despite an excellent 2019 reissue, the sole album by Malaku Daku still seems to be bubbling just under the radar, a state of affairs which is all the more curious given its broad cross-genre appeal to the many afro/funk/jazz/disco heads across the globe.
Especially as the opening track 'The Bump Bang U Bang' leaves you wondering if a young Arthur Russell came across the album in a New York City record store sometime in the mid-seventies only to channel it several years later into the timeless disco not disco classic that is the 1981 'Go Bang' track by Dinosaur L.
