Third -- and sadly last -- chapter of the archival recordings fixed on tape by Hartmut Geerken during his stay in Kabul in the '70s. Insistency! was recorded at the Goethe-Institut Afghanistan in Kabul on same day as the duo session of Hindukush Serenade (HOL 071LP) -- May 22, 1977 -- but also sees Maqsud Schukurwali and Ghafur Rasul -- members of the Free Jazz Group Kabul -- joining Geerken and John Tchicai and playing an insistent anthem, also featuring an eight-year-old Olaf Geerken on congas. On side B, the music gets quieter and Tchicai finds the perfect moment to release his yelled, ecstatic chant, slowly turning into a hypnotizing song. Edition of 250.
