    Track taken from the album "Live at Real World". This album is now available as part of the Real World Gold series - http://realworldrecords.com/gold/

    The formidable rhythms of Burundi’s most celebrated musical exports might have been heavily co-opted by Adam & The Ants and Bow Wow Wow along the way, but the sound remains all theirs. The Drummers were the heroes of the first-ever WOMAD Festival in 1982 and, ten years later, pitched up at Real World Studios where they immortalised their art with this deeply hypnotic performance. Raw, heady and immediate, this record is a one-way ticket to the pumping heart and soul of the mother continent.
