Africa: Drum, Chant & Instrumental Music. About This Album. Originally released in 1976 as Africa: Drum, Chant & Instrumental Music. In order to provide a historical context for this recording, the liner notes that accompanied its original release have been reprinted in full below. The people of the semi-arid bush country of West Africa depend on music to nourish nearly every phase of their lives. Various Artists Artist, Africa Drum Chant & Instrumental Music Artist Format: Audio CD. I first bought this album as a vinyl LP in the 70s, when I was 12. It was an amazing experience to hear music so utterly different from anything I had encountered up to then. Pounding rhythms, grunts, screams, trances are all on this soundtrack. If you look on a map at where this music is coming from, it is literally in the middle of nowhere. I am not sure, but I would bet that some of the recordings go back to the 60s.
