Brian Eno former "Roxy Music" - David Byrne of "Talking Heads": guitars, basses, synthesizers, drums, percussions and "found objects".
Vocal on "Regiment": Dunya Yunis, Lebanese mountain-singer (from "The Human Voice in the World of Islam")
In addition eleven different musicians.
The album "My life in the bush of ghosts" (the title from a novel by Amos Tutuola) was recorded in USA in 1979/1980.
Other tracks on this album include, beside the music, an indignant radio host, a smooth politician, the reverend Paul Morton, an unidentified exorcist and other voices. All taken from different broadcasts and music recordings - then mixed together and produced by Eno/Byrne.
Because one track ("Qu`ran") includes "Algerian Muslims chanting Qu`ran" an Islamic organization considered this blasphemy and wanted it banned. But the song remains on the originaly vinyl record.
The whole album has a great beat and are re-mixed several times by different people/dj/bands - and sadly some of them should not have done just that.
