Malaku 'Daku' Thompson (born Philadelphia 1943, died 2004) was an amazing artist who was deeply involved in percussion and Africanism. Malaku was mostly active in the '70s, producing-recording music and performing percussion at African themed rallies. During the Pan African struggles of the 1970s Malaku changed his last name from Thompson to 'Daku'. Malaku Daku (who was deeply involved in his community) went on to become a teacher and writer of several children's books. During the mid '70s Malaku recorded and produced the album 'Love Drums From The Ghetto', an album that truly showed off his skills as an artistic genius. With this album Malaku Daku delivered an important contribution to the never-ending rich heritage that is African American music. When you listen to (and feel) these exploding pulsations and rhythmic-melodic drumbeats you have to realize that just one man is playing both the top and bottom drumbeats on no less than 8 congas at the same time! Recorded at the legendary Future Gold studio in Philadelphia and originally released in 1974 as a private pressing, this is such an unknown and underrated album that just begs for a place in your record collection. Remastered from the original master tapes (found in a case, hidden in a wall by someone who demolishes houses... the tapes then made their way to a Discogs employee and to the label). This release also comes with an insert containing an unseen manifest written by Malaku Daku himself. Limited to 500 copies.
