Manu Dibango Tribute/Spotlight Part Deux

Here we are for round two of our spotlight on the great Manu Dibango! First discovering him through my parents’ record collection, with my introduction to Manu’s classic breakthrough LP “SoulMakossa”, left me a lifelong fan. From my fortunate acquisitions I’ve chosen some of my favourite selections from twelve of his albums two be spread out over two shows, focusing on releases spanning 1972-1980. *Bonus content available on demand.

Holy Koumba!! Cameo's "It's Serious" sampled the sangah outta Manu's "Motapo"... and I know this because I bump dat Lifeboogie Edit all tha tizzime!!

Hmmm... perhaps I typed too soon, as it would seem that "It's Serious" came out before "Motapo"... well, they both got that late 70's thang thang in action; that much is undeniable
