Manu Dibango 45T (Fiesta 1972)

A 45T from this great saxophonist from Cameroun. Everyone who like african music knows him for his great "Soul Makossa", he used to be the sax of Nino Ferrer during the sixties, a french pop singer...He's still alive, and two years ago it was the 50th anniversary of his carreer in Sète, south of France. On this 45t, two funky tracks recorded in 1972. "Dangwa" on A side, but my favourite is "O boso" on the B side. Thanks to OREL from Muzzicaltrips, he brought me this from Bénin...Check his great blog and his party in Paris with Palwmine records.

UN petit 45t du saxophoniste camerounais Manu Dibango. Tout le monde connait "Soul Makossa", ici on est plus ou moins dans la même période, 1972. Il a fêté ses 50 ans de carrière il y a deux à Sète, pour l'excellent festival "FiestaSète"...Mon morceau favori est sur la face B, "O boso". Merci à Orel qui m'a ramené ce disque de chez un pote de Cotonou, Bénin. Vous pouvez retrouver OREL sur son blog : Muzzicaltrips ou dans ses soirées parisiennes avec Palmwine Records (Disquaires, Favela Chic...etc).
