Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki was a pseudo-Japanese concept album from prolific Belgian-French production duo Jean Kluger and Daniel Vangarde. Based on a dance named the "Yamasuki", it was originally released in very small quantities on the independent label Biram in 1971, inadvertently becoming a useful educational tool for French students keen to learn Japanese.
Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki is a collection of beautiful pop songs, sung by a Japanese choir, offset to pounding drum patterns, vibes and fuzz guitar work-outs.
For those in need of epic, exotic, metronomic, and dare I say it - proto-psychedelic hip hop that defies categorization - you need look and listen no further. An educational bubblegum multicultural psych-rock opera with lavish choral arrangements and triple-fat beats and basslines is the only way to describe this 1971 French/Japanese choreography LP which was designed to bridge the European and Eastern-Asian culture gap through the power of deep and funky music.
