Manu Dibango - Soul Makossa (1972)


Vibrant, funky, infinitely likeable, jazz-inflected Afrobeat courtesy of African saxophonist Manu Dibango. Genuinely feel sorry for anyone who can't get down with this.

Track listing:
1. New Bell
2. Nights in Zeralda
3. Hibiscus
4. Dangwa
5. Lily
6. Soul Makossa
7. Oboso

Wild man in the city

    1. Thanks. I keep on making dumb little mistakes on these posts, possibly in part because I write them like 10 at a time, and almost always while moderately to severely high.
