Friday Drive
Friday March 27th, 2020 with Trevor Walker
Manu Dibango Tribute/Spotlight Part 1

Although I wasn't able to broadcast this episode live i thought it would be fitting to do a spotlight on the great Manu Dibango who passed away March 24th of this year, due to complications from COVID-19. Manu Dibango has been a huge musical influence on my musical journey, First discovering him through my parents’ record collection in the late ‘70’s with Manu’s classic breakthrough LP “SoulMakossa”! Needless to say I’ve always grabbed any albums of his that would cross my path over the years. From my fortunate acquisitions I’ve chosen selections from twelve of his albums two be spread out over two shows, focusing on releases spanning 1972-1980.
