Boomkat Product Review:
Haunting, deeply mystic tribal folk disco dub from 1976, plucked out and dusted down by Isle Of Jura Records for necessary reissue. Exactly the kind of gear you’d expect to hear from the cosmic discos of Italy to the stylish discotheeks of Belgium and on balearic sets in the pre-house mid ‘80s, pre-echoing the styles of Burundi Black. Includes a previously unreleased Extended Version and the glorious Anambra River.
“For the next official reissue Isle Of Jura goes back to 1976 to resurrect ‘Anambra’, the jewel in the crown of Dub, Soul & Funk outfit Ozo. ‘Anambra’ is something of a classic, a unique song that’s slow, ritualistic and spiritual, mixing African & Nyabinghi drumming with a Buddhist Sanskrit mantra ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’. An alternate version ‘Anambra River’ appears for the first time on the same 12”.”
