Dibumbe - Manulo Dibumbe - Ambass bey Makossa (Vinyl, LP)


  • Aug 16,  · Makossa is a lively urban popular music danced to in clubs in Cameroon's cities. The funky bass rhythm, horn section, and vocalists create a unified sound, urging the dancers to move in rhythmic motion. Compared with Zairian soukous, makossa's sound is leaner, using fewer instruments and more musical space.
  • Born in Dibombari a town north of Douala, Nguime Manulo was discovered in the late s by Salle John, who revived Ambass-Bey during the s. Ambass-Bey originated among the Yabassi people and grew popular in Douala after World War II. Through the s and s, the style evolved in the Cameroonian Littoral.

  • I first heard this album on vinyl, in my brother's collection, I think in the '70's. I got to thinking about it, and looked for it, and found it, on lactiorereshotiteslixydemule.coinfo The title song, Soul Makossa, is everything I remembered it to be. The rest of the album is great, too. Well worth the money, if you like African rhythms and music/5(24).
