This CD is killer. There isn't one song that isn't great. I have certain CDs that I own that I consider precious jewelry because every song is a jewel.

Soul Makossa is the original of Micheal Jackson's 'Wanna be Starting Something' and Biko has been sung by both Peter Gabriel and Simple Minds.

Wimowe was heard in both 'Lion King' and 'Coming To America' soundtracks.

Everything for everybody who is into African music...A sort of one stop shop.

This is a first rate recording. The greatest hits of the continent are rerecorded with manu providing the arrangements. Original stars such as Ladyblacksmith Mamboza guest on there own songs and on others. The feel of the album is funky and jazzy, like Manu's well plagerised hit soul makossa, which is well updated here. The new song Wakafrica stands out here also.

How come I missed this when it was first released. I love Manu Dibango and bought this as the collaboration with various well respected artistes appealed to me. Also it got excellent reviews here. It is superb at a brilliant price. A real gem.

World music lovers, this is for you! 19 Oct. 2014
By Reggae Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though I doubt that Dibango's genre is reggae, I first heard of him on the reggae channel. This album has me convinced that this man from Cameroon is the best living saxophone player in the world. The single, "Emma," was my gateway to the CD, but then I fell wildly in love with "Lady," not to be confused with Lionel Richie's hit (made popular by Kenny Rogers) by the same name. Dibango's version just has so many layers and sections to it. The sense of the lyrics pleases me, too. The song praises the strength and ability of an African woman / of African women. Here's a bit of trivia: When you listen to the first song on the album, you will recognize its influence on an American pop star. Who is it? Please lose no time in buying this album!
