My favourite African musician by far was Lucky Dube, a brilliant reggae artist from South Africa. He was heavily influenced by Peter Tosh, and tragically he ended up murdered just like his hero.

I always liked Osibisa (actually saw them on Hastings Pier)

Nowadays Tinariwen have my ear

I can't say I've even heard of it...

It's an old film - from late fifties? It has no words, so no problem understanding it (not that you would have anyway")

If you google it, it's on youtube - it was made in 1956 - you can watch it all.

I just Wikipedia'd it, and it won a few Oscars, so it must be good. I'll have a look around for it! Any reason why you brought it up?

DOH! Because of the red balloons in the Rufus Wainwright video you posted! It's a bit "borrowed" from the classic film.
