Emmanuel N'Djoké Dibango (born 12 December 1933) is a Cameroonian musician and song-writer who plays saxophone and vibraphone. He developed a musical style fusing jazz, funk, and traditional Cameroonian music. His father was a member of the Yabassi ethnic group, though his mother was a Duala. He is best known for his 1972 single "Soul Makossa". Dibango was born in Douala, Cameroon. His father, Michel Manfred N'Djoké Dibango, was a civil servant.
Dibango became known internationally with his 1972 hit "Soul Makossa," but has been active as an solo artist and as a member of various bands and orchestras since the late '50s. This set goes through all of it, from his first recordings in 1960 and continuing right on through to the beginning of the 21st century. The late '70s and early '80s made Dibango an international dancefloor icon with his collaborations with Sly & Robbie, Bill Laswell, and François Kevorkian, as well as many others during the post-punk and Afro-funk years.

The Cameroonian jazz legend Manu Dibango made a splash on the world charts back in 1973 with a propulsive, saxophone-driven instrumental called "Soul Makossa," which sprinkled bits of American funk and soul into the dance music of West Africa. An ideal album to keep a party going, this sampler gives ample evidence for why Dibango enjoys such high regard.
