Do you know of a drum beat type tune back in the 70's performed by a band called "barundi black"? (Wednesday, 19 Mar 2003 01:57)
There was a 45 single released from and Album that made the charts, it was simple called Burundi Black it was a fusion of sound & chants from the Drummers of Burundi. Electric guitars were added and the result was simple stunning, it made the hair on your neck stand on end. Unfortunately my only copy was stolen some 20 years ago an I have been seqarching for another copy ever since.

In late 1971 a single entitled Burundi Black, by Burundi Steiphenson Black, entered the British chart. It was a slow but steady seller, peaking at No 31 but remaining in theTop Fifty for 14 weeks. The record featured drummers and chanters from the country of Burundi, with orchestral additions by Frenchman Mike Steiphenson. It stood out because of itstribal rhythms, an unusual feature for a chart record. The name ofBurundi Black became fashionable to drop in 1981, the big year for British pop stars Adam & The Ants, whose style was heavily influenced by the Burundi sound and rhythms. (Bob MacDonald, 1984.)
