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.
