In 1982 Dibango was pretty far from both Cameroon's traditional music and his modern version of it, in which he used rock organs and a heavy beat. Waka Juju is a jazzy record with clear fusion tendencies (even if African fusion was usually less chromatic than its European or American counterparts during the '80s), more preserved soul elements, and, of course, more drums. This is a style that Dibango masters well, and the result is a record more suited for the lounge than for the dancefloor
