Longtime musical globetrotter Rob Weisberg has a cool survey of Obama praise songs in the WNYC art.cult blog. A lot of Kenyan and African-American samples I hadn't seen before, including the one below, from Congolese singer now in DC Samba Mapangala featuring awesome 14-year-old Minneapolis rapper Fanaka Ndege ("hip hop meets rumba").
Rob played some of these and other good stuff in his WFMU show, Transpacific Sound Paradise Saturday and tonight at 6 pm. So tune in while you wait for polls to close. Relax. Dance a little.
