More Info:

In 1984, Jasper Van't Hof, a prominent European jazz pianist, propelled to fame with the energetic 'Pili Pili' a 15-minute trance collaboration with Guinea's Isaac Tagul Group. Inspired by a fiery red pepperoni, the track sold over 100,000 copies, leading the group to adopt the name Pili-Pili, becoming a hit in the club and disco scene.Pili-Pili's musical roots trace back to Van't Hof's 1982-83 tour in Central Africa, where he discovered a love for African music. The band embraced authenticity by collaborating with diverse African musicians from Mali, Congo, Senegal, and Guinea. In 2000, Van't Hof initiated a project with the young Zulu choir Phikelela Sakhula from Durban, South Africa. Pili Pili's style, described as experimental fusion, blends intricate African rhythms with jazz, fusion, funk, and dance. Van't Hof emphasized the importance of groove over complex solos, stating that intellectual approaches are lost in their music.The band's performances, marked by their energetic fusion of jazz and African rhythms, gained acclaim across Europe. Regular tours and festival appearances, such as the Jazz Festival of Montreux, solidified Pili-Pili's reputation as an excellent live band. Reviews praised the band's dynamic and explosive music, turning every performance into a rhythmic and fiery experience.Tracklisting:A1. Pili-Pili (Original New 1995 Edit) (15:39)B1.
