The Very Best- Warm Heart of Africa

This is a pretty sweet song I just heard on BBC6- It is by the Very Best, which is a collaboration between Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and Euro DJ duo Radioclit. I love AfroBeat and all of the American/English artists that are heavily influenced by it, like The Talking Heads and Vampire Weekend. Ezra Koenig from VWeekend helps out on lead vocals here- buoyant and bubbly - a great summer song!

P.S. - I have no idea what is going on with the visuals in the YouTube clip though. Gotta love those crazy Japanese game shows!
