Zazou, Bikaye & CY1 - Noir et Blanc, 1983

One of the most organically freaky records I've ever heard. Totally serendipitous experimental pile-on of traditional Congolese singer Bony Bikaye; Algerian-born French producer Hector Zazou; and Claude Micheli and Guillaume Loizillon, mechanics of a massive wall of early 70s analog computers who called themselves CY1. Calling this "east meets west" is totally reductive; this thing is man meets machine on another planet.
