speaking of afro-pop…

the very best is what esau mwamwaya, a malawian singer,  and radioclit (?!), a european dj, call themselves.

 these guys released an album in ’07, and this song garnered some attention. let me know if it sounds familiar. (it will.) gosh. LOVE IT. i mean, just look at the album cover.

and the guy sings in 4 languages. !!!

anyway, according to pitchfork, their new album, which comes out this fall, will feature 2 unannounced guests…m.i.a. and ezra koenig. ezra guests on “warm hearts of africa,” the album’s title track. what a perfect summer jam. afro-pop at its finest.

warm hearts of africa”- the very best feat. ezra koenig of vampire weekend (you have to scroll way down)
