Starting in the 1950s, he became a globe-trotting musician, living and performing in France, Belgium, Jamaica, Zaire, and Cote d'Ivoire, as well as in Cameroon. In 1960, Dibango was one of the founding members of the Zairean band African Jazz, with whom he spent five years. World attention came to Dibango with the release in 1972 of Soul Makossa. He has worked with musicians as diverse as Fela Kuti, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Don Cherry, and the Fania All-Stars.

"Soul Makossa" is a 1969 single by Cameroonian makossa saxophonist Manu Dibango. It is often cited as one of the first disco records. In 1972 David Mancuso found a copy in a Brooklyn West Indian record store and often played it at his Loft parties. The response was so positive that the few copies of "Soul Makossa" in New York City were quickly bought up. The song was subsequently played heavily by Frankie Crocker, who DJed at WBLS, then New York's most popular black radio station. Since the original was now unfindable, at least 23 groups quickly released cover versions to capitalize on the demand for the record.

Dibango is Cameroon’s, and perhaps Africa’s, best-known jazz saxophonist. Dibango recorded his first album, Manu Dibango, in 1968, followed by O Boso (1971) and Soma Loba (1972). Informed by jazz and R&B, all three albums were essentially in the same urgent – at times fantastically raucous – makossa mould, which Dibango successfully introduced to the international marketplace.

Among American audiences, Manu Dibango is best known for "Soul Makossa," a highly infectious blend of African music, soul-funk, and jazz that became a major pop hit in the early '70s. The African artist revisited his signature tune on 1994's Wakafrika, which boasts an all-star cast that includes Peter Gabriel as well as Haiti's Papa Wemba and African heroes Ladysmith Black Mambazo, King Sunny Ade, and Youssou N'Dour. With such a stellar bunch of guests, Wakafrika should have been outstanding instead of simply decent.

Pionnier de la world musique, créateur d'un panafricanisme musical, Manu Dibango est un homme qui a construit son destin au trait d'union artistique, mais aussi politique, du continent africain et de la France. Il aime se définir comme un musicien africain témoin de l'histoire de son continent. Derrière ses éclats de rire, sa vie est une bibliothèque ouverte sur soixante-dix années de soubresauts et d'inventions musicales. En 1933, au "Quartier" noir de Douala, la capitale du Cameroun sous protectorat français, naît Emmanuel Dibango. Il arrive en France en 1948 dans un petit village de la Sarthe. Européen depuis ses 15 ans, mais Camerounais pour toujours, Manu va devenir le premier Africain d'un Paris centre mondial de l'afro-musique. Ce documentaire suit Manu Dibango sur les lieux de son histoire personnelle en France et en Belgique et parcourt son itinéraire musical.

A nice compilation of the ultra-varied career of Manu Dibango. The disc jumps from era to era comfortably, but hits upon almost every phase Dibango passed through (with the surprising exception of the original "Soul Makossa"). The album starts out in his early years with a sax-saturated ska in "Ngolowake," moving to the solo marimba work, a smooth jazz-esque version of "Nature Boy," and an orchestral work from his early days. Also included are pieces from the makossa days, contemporary R&B, urban grooves and more. The album ends with a contemporary remix of "Soul Makossa" and "Big Blow," with Bill Laswell and Herbie Hancock taking the sideman roles. Dibango has an über-impressive resume, and this is one of the better collections to introduce listeners to the variety present.
