Embryo - Africa

Embryo is a musical collective from Munich which has been active since 1969, although its story started in the mid-1950s in Hof, Germany where Christian Burchard and Dieter Serfas met for the first time at the age of 10. It was one of the most important German jazz-rock bands during the 1970s and has also been described as "the most eclectic" of the Krautrock bands. 

Always trying something new, the next big Embryo adventure was a tour via Turkey through to Egypt, and later a tour through Africa. "AFRICA" documents these projects with an exceptionally wide variety of musics.
