Request...found! - Christy Azuma

Here is a full version of the title song from the film Bamako?

And unrelated except by virtue of an amazing song, via the great Likembe blog, is a 70's Somali song that absolutely fucking rocks:

UPdate a few days later: Thanks Ngoniba for the sleuthing--  Christy Azuma & Uppers International from (didn't see this coming) Ghana!  In the film the character and singer Mele is from Senegal* but married and living in Mali, and apparently singing a Ghanaian song.  The track can be found on Ghana Soundz Vol. 2.  Some searching will yield a copy.


(* or, at least speaks to her mom in Wolof on the phone)
