Ring The Bell

Here is one of my favorite Manu Dibango tracks in his 1972 cut of "New Bell". This funky African jazz gem was originally released off of Dibango's classic album Soul Makossa. The song is often over-shadowed by the record's titled track, "Soul Makossa", and probably rightfully so. That being said, "New Bell", which finds Dibango's signature sound at it's best, is an overall amazing track that certainly has the ability to stand on it's own. Enjoy!
