Manu Dibango: African Pop Session + Aphrodite Shake
From African Voodoo (PSI, 1972)
A quick hit:
African Voodoo is basically a library-style record of instrumentals done by Manu Dibango of “Soul Makossa” fame and it is, I’d say with some confidence, his funkiest work, by far. “African Pop Session” is some dark, blaxploitation score for midnight stalkers while “Aphrodite Shake” drops a nice, smoky Afro-Latin groove – dig how they pan the congas and drum kit in separate channels.
