A Big, Sad Blow

I am incredibly sad to hear of the death of the legendary Cameroonian
saxophonist, Manu Dibango, who died at eighty-six this week after contracting
coronavirus. Tracks of his, such as “Big Blow,” “Abele Dance” and, of course,
“Soul Makossa,” brought African rhythms onto the dancefloors of discotheques
all over the world.
