African Symphony

I am sharing with you a new re-edit of Henry Mancini's disco classic "African Symphony" from his album Symphonic Soul. I have just discovered this song from reading Vince Aletti's book The Disco Files 1973/78 which I keep devouring like a disco monk. I am intrigued about this song for it's amazing jungle drums and cinematic orchestration. In this re-edit, I extended the intro and re-shuffled some of the driving metronomic tempos and sprinkled them with some jungle sounds. This is a sweet disco a la Mancini with a cherry on top. Enjoy
