Cameroon Soul

Manu Dibango: Ceddo End Title

Here's a track that came on my radio last night while driving through a vicious ice storm and I just had to share it. Originally taken from Musique Du Film Ceddo the soundtrack from the 1976 Senegalese film Ceddo it is performed by Cameroon's most famous jazz artist Manu Dibango. The other worldly marimba along with the funky guitar create a groove that cannot be denied. If your lucky enough to find the original soundtrack please share, otherwise you can find this track on the tremendous Luaka Bop compilation Love's a Real Thing.
