Listen to Wakafrika by Manu Dibango on Deezer.

The African artist revisited his signature tune on 1994's Wakafrika, which boasts an all-star cast that includes Peter Gabriel as well as Haiti's Papa Wemba and African heroes Ladysmith Black Mambazo, King Sunny Ade, and Youssou N'Dour. With such a stellar bunch of guests, Wakafrika should have been outstanding instead of simply decent.

Cameroon expatriate Manu Dibango's Wakafrika is arguably the most catholic African album ever recorded. I "discovered" Manu Dibango back in college in the early 1990's and bought this album and some of his older stuff (1970's vintage). its like an old friend coming to town. it doesn't show its age one bit. Highly recommend this album as you'll get a healthy dose of Manu Dibango plus a warm introduction to other talented artists who make an appearance.
