One of at least two so-called "library" records that Dibangu helped put together, "African Voodoo" has some killer, killer instrumentals on it. Despite the title, it's not as exotic as you might think, nor necessarily even firmly based on Afro-beat compositions. Dibangu shows impressive range with a selection of different sounds and styles including "Groovy Flute", "Soul Saxes Meeting" and "Jungle Riders". I mean, how can you go wrong with titles like those and ones like: "Iron Wood", "Zoom 2000" and "Aphrodite Shake"? Dope-a-delic.
