A superb album released in 1979 by Oriental Wind, a group led by drummer/percussionist Okay Temiz from Turkey, the pinnacle of ethnic jazz grooves. Tuna Otenel (p,as), who also participated in the masterpiece "Chila-Chila" released in the same year, and Doudou Gouirand (as,ss), who also released this album with Don Cherry, participate in this album. A2 is a crazy ethnic world with strong sound of berimbau, and B2 is a sticky ethno-jazz funk with mouth harp and flute floating mysteriously. A1 is a deep spiritual track that is outstanding among Okay Temiz's works. Released from Paddle Wheel in Japan.
