Release Date:12/09/2016;Notes:LP version. 180 gram vinyl, in a "Tip-On" sleeve, with a download card and an insert with liner notes, interview and pictures Edition of 1500. Jazzman Records present the first reissue of Mor Thiam's Dini Safarrar (Drums Of Fire), originally released in small numbers as a custom pressing in 1973. The compelling Dini Safarrar by Senegalese drummer Mor Thiam has gained cult status around the world amongst enthusiasts of jazz, funk, hip hop and African music, and has achieved grail status among LP collectors. Faithful to the original and made with the blessing and cooperation of Mor Thiam himself, as well as his son Aliaume Thiam, otherwise known as hip hop and R&B superstar Akon. Mor Dogo Thiam (pronounced "Chahm") is a cultural historian, dedicated philanthropist and genius on the djembe. He began his career as a drummer while a young boy in his native Senegal before moving to St. Louis, Missouri in the early 1970s, where his unique musical skills earned him the respect of the local jazz community. A fusion of the traditions of his Senegalese upbringing and the funk and jazz sounds of his new environs, Dini Safarrar was entirely self-funded and was also conceived as a benefit album, with all the proceeds donated to famine relief in Africa. The subtitle and translation of Dini Safarrar is "Drums Of Fire", though it may be more aptly described as "Drums Of Krakatoa", such is the explosive intensity captured within the grooves. The multitude of pulsating percussive elements throughout each track creates an intense rhythmic dissonance, the musical equivalent of an erupting volcano. It can be no coincidence that the energy and passion of Akon's music was duly ignited by his father's very same Drums Of Fire. May the legacy continue, God bless Akon.;Track List:1. Ayo Ayo Nene;2. Sindiely;3. Kele Mumbana;4. Kanfera;5. Africa
