Afrovision is the tenth LP by Cameroonian saxophonist and vibraphone player Manu Dibango. It was originally released in 1976. Manu Dibango kicks off the album with ‘Big Blow’ a funky disco monster. Elsewhere, the funky bass line of ‘Dakar Streets’, the serious afrofunk groove of ‘Aloko Party’ and the funky afrobeat of the title track make this a must have LP of African jazz-funk.
