Original price was: £29.00.Current price is: £20.00.

Manu Dibango is probably one of Cameroon’s most famous musicians, and possibly the most internationally recognized African musician.

A true jack-of-all-trades, he has played and recorded virtually every style of music you can think of – Soul, Reggae, Jazz, Spirituals, Blues, African, Electro. Etc… Initially trained on classical piano, his musical career began in Brussels and Paris in the 50s. In the 60s, he flew to the Congo as a member of Joseph Kabasele’s African Jazz group, Le Grand Kalle. Next came Cameroon in 1963, where he formed his own group before returning to Paris in 1965.

For the Manu 76 album, we are – obviously – in 1976, still in Paris. Four years after his international breakthrough with his hit Soul Makossa, Manu assembled a prestigious cast of musicians including Jo Tongo on bass, Slim Pezin on guitar, Lucien Dobat (from Kassav) on drums, Alex Francfort on piano and 7-year-old Georgia Dibango as guest vocalist.
