mama say what?

This is a revalation for me.  The lyrics “mamase mamasa mamakoosa” have been a part of my vocabulary for as far back as I can remember (Thriller was one of the first albums I ever had as a kid), yet they are as mysterious as they are irresistible to sing along to.  The mystery is over now for me thanks to this article that was pointed out by my friend @ArjayV.  Read the article and then listen to the video below.  It’s the Manu Dibango song that is the subject of the article, and it’s absolutely incredible.  I really want to check out more of this cat’s music now.
