Afro-Hatian Experimental Orchestra – A.H.E.O. (Glitterbeat)

aheoafrohaitianexperimentalorchestraAn experiment in every sense! Afro-beat drummer Tony Allen was asked to come to Haiti and play with an assortment of leading Haitian musicians recruited by the Haitian National Bureau of Ethnology. Out of the chaos, Allen stepped up as music director, laying down beats to which were added super bass lines, voodoo rhythms, chants, & more. This CD was assembled from rehearsal tapes after plans to record the live performance were thwarted by technical difficulties.
