Tantra – The Hills Of Katmandu (1979)

YouTube – No Amazon – No iTunes – Discogs


First off, not all of ‘The Hills of Katmandu’ is on the money. But when you have 16 minute plus of an Italodisco workout, there is a lot to choose from. ‘The Hills…’ was produced by Celso Valli, one of the original exponents of Italodisco. This Jürgen Koppers mix starts with an infectious club rhythm, plenty of bongo and chanting echoes. During the many twists and turns, there’s some dodgy pungi snake-charming sounds, but hey ho. It’s worth the journey for some of the finest choppy guitar rhythms combined with whistle keyboards at around the halfway mark. Fans of Nile Rodgers’ influence on Daft Punk will enjoy.
