On 'Manu 76' Manu Dibango assembled a supremely talent bunch of musicians which include Jo Tongo on bass, Slim Pezin on guitar, Lucien Dobat (Kassav) on drums, Alex Francfort on piano and Georgia Dibango (at age 7) on the guest vocals. The album's six tracks straddle a series of styles from the soukous beats of 'Bokiko's Boogie' and 'Qui Est Fou De Qui', Afro boogie jazz with the highly catchy 'Mimbo', the driving afro future-jazz of 'Mouvement Ewondo', the pensive soundtrack moods of 'Besoka' and the bombastic, Afro funk soul of 'Angola' which sounds like it could have come of the 'Shaft In Africa. soundtrack.
