Amanaz is said to be one of the more prominent artists within the Zamrock genre that emerged in the '70s.

Pretty cool when you think of it that way and listen to it from that perspective. To get you more acquainted with Zamrock, here's an entire album of it by Amanaz, simply entitled, Africa. Enjoy!

If you had to combine the styles of two different musical artists, who would they be?
