Baloji be on that Rumba
Something must be in the air (no volcanic ash.) Rumba (or in this case cha cha cha) has inspired an amazing old school referencing video by the greatest music video maker in the world right now, Baloji. Sampling (or covering) Dr. Nico and Grand Kalle it's an independence jam from 1960. Seeing as this is the month for many of the African nations' independence anniversaries, and the Congo's 50th this year, the release is quite timely as well. RUMBA!
For more on my current obsession with Rumba check my last WFMU post.
