Dougou Badia

I discovered this song when I was returning from my expedition. I was listening to the 'Africa Now' playlist on the little aeroplane tv to soak up the last ounce of Tanzanian culture I could and found this. By Amadou and Mariam, a blind duo from Mali, and featuring an urban injection from Santigold, this song is a brilliant fusion of musical style. I love the intro, especially when the voices enter.

Also, I haven't been able to stop singing the Jambo song. I even taught my friend this song from Tanzania and she can't get it out of her head either. Awh, it's just so happy.
