Song Of The Day - "Soul Makossa" by Manu Dibango

Hailing from Cameroon, Africa, Manu Dibango established himself as an in-demand saxophone player working with acts as diverse as Fela Kuti, Don Cherry, The Fania All-Stars and Sly and Robbie. He hit paydirt with this international hit in 1973 whose imprint can be heard all over Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'."
