Chaino - Africana & Beyond (Dionysus)

Another great reissue from Dionysus, officially on their Bacchus Archives imprint.  Chaino is an African percussionist who recorded a bunch of drum-heavy exotic music back in '58 or so, when people were having fun indulging their primitive, tribal urges at tiki-themed cocktail parties.  27 tracks on this cd, broken into Exoticana, Rock 'n Rollana, and Africana with lots of cool percussion and plenty of grunts and growls from Chaino himself.
