Shake it with Awilo

My wife was born in Kenya and grew up in Seychelles. Me? I was born in the very exotic setting of Racine, Wisconsin. Since I met her a few years ago, I’ve been introduced to a lot of great music from that part of our planet. Among them is this tune, Coupé Bibamba, from Congolese singer Awilo Longomba. Awilo will get the heads bobbing on the fellas and the booties shakin’ on the ladies. If you’re wondering how this music would be categorized, it’s called Soukous.
