Manu Dibango is probably the most famous musician from Cameroon and quite possibly one of the most internationally well-known African musicians ever. He is a most versatile musician, having played and recorded almost every style of music you care to mention - soul, reggae, jazz, spirituals, blues, African, electro.

Dibango displays his virtuosity on vocals, saxophone, percussions, and keyboards in a set that attempts to pick up commercially where Soul Makossa ended. Most recording artists releasing albums in the late '70s included a disco tune, and Dibango is no exception; "Big Blow," a mighty slab of African funk, is his contribution to the style. A favorite is the instrumental "Dakar Street" which is African fusion-jazz at its finest, with its soundtrack-laced xylo jazz smoothness. The afrofunk, groove laden "Aloko Party", and the smooth progressive afro jazz of "Bayam Sell'am" have the same driving force that propelled "Soul Makossa" up the charts.. And the album finishes off with the Afrobeat grooves, punchy organ and layered guitars of the title track “Africadelic”.
A true classic.”
