Manu Dibango & The Soul Makossa Gang

LONDON Ronnie Scott’s
47 Frith Street, Soho

"He is, after all, an undisputed legend for followers of anything from world music to jazz, funk and the whole host of other styles that have taken his fancy over the years." (Guardian

Multi-instrumentalist, composer, bandleader, Cameroon-born, Paris-resident Manu Dibango returns to London with the Soul Makossa Gang. 

Dibango has been at the forefront of African music for over half a century.  He has one of the most instantly recognisable saxophone sounds in the business and has recorded close on forty-five albums, composed a host of film scores, won countless awards and even presented his own TV show.  

Expect an evening of pop, afro funk, soul, hip-hop, electro rock and jazz from the legendary Manu Dibango.

I love everything Manu does, from the afro-disco room-shakers to his beautiful solo piano recordings. I’m curious to see what he’s got up his sleeve for this gig, and I’m thrilled to see him in such an intimate setting.
