Then, just because I can, I take you back to rumba. This track is a new favorite of mine from Orchestra Super Mazembe whom are named after – believe it or not – the lingala name for a bulldozer. Why? Well, they figure that “their music had the same earthmoving effect”. Their track for today is Jiji.
Finally, a bonus track for those of you brave enough to go this far: This week, its a classic – Manu Dibango’s Soul Makossa.
Which reminds me that Wyclef Jean used this track in the intro of his 1997? album The Carnival. There was one track from that album – Street Jeopardy – that made me go out and actually buy the album – it describes life in Nairobi down to a “t”.
Strictly for fun:
