Chaino, real name Leon Johnson, was a Philadelphia-born, Chicago-raised bongo player and self-proclaimed African percussion genius. He created a mythical back-story about being the only survivor of a non-violent African tribe with special powers. Jungle Echoes by Chaino & his African Percussion was his third album and is a genuinely intriguing mix of percussion and vocal noises that was originally released in 1958.
