To enliven the atmosphere, he hired the world’s first disc jockey. Inauspiciously, the discotheque era was born.</p><p>The phenomena spread like wildfire around Europe in the 1960s. A decade later, New York clubbers discovered "Soul Makossa" by Cameroonian artist Manu Dibango, a track that many consider the first modern disco hit.</p><p>To pay homage to the genre's global heritage, Jerome and <em>Radio M</em> host Tony Sarabia spin everything from Italodisco and Nigerian Afrobeat-infused disco to disco-inspired house music from Brazil.</p><p>You can hear the tracks and their conversation in the audio link above. But here's a short list of seven great global disco tunes:</p><p><strong>Track List</strong></p><p>1. I Feel Love - Donna Summer (U.S.)</p><p>2. Ein Schiff wird kommen - Lale Anderson (Germany)</p><p>3. Soul Makossa - Manu Dibango (Cameroon)</p><p>4. Walking On Music - Peter Jacques Band (Italy)</p><p>5. Robot Is Systematic - 'Lectric Workers (Italy)</p><p>6. Love Affair - SJOB Movement (Nigeria)</p><p>7.

Born and raised in Mumbai, she trained in Indian classical singing before moving to the U.S. in the 1970s to pursue jazz.&nbsp;</p><p>Asha's music has been called a cross between Raga and Aretha Franklin.
