Late last month, Matasuna Records successfully mined “Ritual”, the sought-after 1971 album by Nico Gomez and his Afro-Percussion Inc (a studio combo helmed by Belgian composer Joseph van het Groenewoud), and reissued one of the standout tracks, “Lupita”. Here they serve up another gem from the album, “Baila Chibiquiban”, an Incredible Bongo Band-esque fusion of psychedelic rock, heavy funk and even heavier Afro-Cuban percussion. The fine original version is given the re-edit treatment on the flip, with Tonton Boom extending some percussive passages and emphasizing the killer groove before introducing some of the track’s headier musical elements. It’s the kind of rework that should find favour with proper break-dancers.
