Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Africano” From Their 1975 Album That’s The Way Of The World

Here’s the track “Africano” from Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1975 release, That’s The Way Of The World.

Maurice’s message from the album;

In our musical efforts to communicate,
we’ve set a new goal in the presentation
of this album. This is a musical score, put
together, with you in mind – each song
is an event, relative to an experience,
we’ve lived, while trying to achieve
perfection in our everyday lives – we
laugh, we cry, we worship, we enjoy.

You might recall an ole saying – you
reap what you sow – that’s the way of
the world – God Bless You.
-Maurice White
