Rest in Peace, Manu Dibango (1933 – 2020) Cut down by COVID-19 😥
Apparently it takes Gary Larson publishing His_Very_Own_Webpage (and my discovering it) to get me to post again. Really must restart, and this is a good one to go with.

As the YouTube publisher states, those versions are superior to this recording. But hey, this is apparently the first videoContinue reading “Maestro y Maestro”
Talking Heads: Life During Wartime
