Sun Ra - Egypt Strut 180 gram vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 15-VL 901059
"In 1983, Sun Ra travelled to Egypt, the land of great African kings and perhaps descendants of an alien race, and therefore, a kind of spiritual homeland for Ra, to record two compositions by the godfather of Egyptian Jazz, percussionist Salah Ragab. The second piece, 'Dawn', is a composition based on an Islamic hymn sung during the Arabic month of Shawall and features Ra playing the Hohner melodica. This record is particularly significant because, despite Ra's enormous discography and tours to all corners of the globe, this is one of the few times he ever recorded with a non- African American musician. Perhaps Ra was intrigued by the fact that the two men shared the same initials? Or perhaps he was drawn to his exceptional talent as a percussionist: knowing Ra, it was probably a little of both. Also includes 'Watusa', recorded live at Il Capo Jazz club in Cairo in January 1984."
