ZANG TUUMB TUM DISCOGRAPHY “…or the imagination”

Song for chango


Sleevenotes: Song for Chango, recorded in New York City in August 1982 by African/Cuban priests of the Lucumi cult, is a song to “Chango”, God of Storm and Lightning. People move to these rhythms, whose job it is to invoke a body spirit in you, transforming yourself into the magical world. The producer fell under it’s spell whilst recording this track. This song is known all over Western Africa and has been in existence long before Jesus Christ was born. Another form of dancing “Carabai” is mainly pantomimic of animals and usually done by specialists—you’ve got to be good for this one!
