Niagara is Klauss Weiss (1942-2008) studio project, a remarkable german rhythmic master with total feel and groove that many of his teutonic peers lacked at the time. He recruited up to 7 other percussionists from all over the world to record the unique self titled album in 1970. The 2 other albums have more of a psychedelic jazz fusion vibe, rhythm is the bread and butter of this music but theres more instrumentation as well as several psych/krautrock/funk and world music influences. This band never performed live so this basically encapsulates their whole sound. A shame, they would have been a killer avant garde dance band, its hard not to move after the first few seconds of Sangandongo.
