Bwana

Bwana are an obscure psychedelic-funk-jazz-rock band from Nicaragua circa 1970-1972. Lots of Latin percussion, acid rock guitar, jammin' organ. Spanish language vocals for the most part, although actually the majority of this consists of instrumental grooves. Bwana must have been a hot live band. There's certainly many flashes of acid-psych intensity but this really will appeal more surely to the Dusty Grooves/lounge crowd than those only hoping for the real freaked-out stuff. More Santana than Mutantes, in other words, and strongly psychedelicized.

Researches begun years ago, diggin’ dusty vinyl crates for obscure samples. The discovery of Italian '60s and '70s soundtracks was a crucial point; from that moment on nothing sounded as good and interesting as electrifying tracks from exploitation movies.
