Afro Percussion Incorporated

Here is a heavy-weight Afro-Latin funk gem, titled "Ritual", by Nico Gomez And His Afro Percussion Inc.. This was the title track off the group's solid and hard-to-find 1971 album. The track, which can also be found on a number of compilations, is a producer and deejay's dream, as the song is overloaded with many funky drum and instrumental breaks. This is just one of the many great tracks from the Ritual album, which also includes other Afro and Latin flavoured funk cuts like "Caballo Negro", "Lupita", and "Baila Chibiquiban". Nico Gomez has released a number of great records throughout his life, however this early seventies masterpiece might just be his best work. Enjoy your weekend!

I've got the Japanese CD reissue of this, and it's solid all the way through, but for me "Lupita" is the standout track. Nice version of "El Condor" on here too.
