Check out this Mail and Guardian article about Somali-Canadian rapper K'Naan.
Highlights from the article:
"The album is a capsule of the world, which is to say the American world, viewed through the lens of a socially conscious Somali.
His album is spiced with references to legends such as Fela Kuti, Lucky Dube and others -- he familiarly alludes to them as though they were generous uncles who regularly popped in at the family home when he was a boy. He also samples the continent's rhythms, especially those of Ethiopian jazz artists such as Getatchew Mekurya and Mulatu Astatke."
Here's to K'Naan and the Africa's first soccer world cup!
