Angelique Kidjo "Wombo Lombo"


I first encountered Angelique a few years ago on the NickJr program Jack's Big Music Show.  The program featured this very song while Angelique and some others were dancing with the children.  This song really started to stick in my head and before I knew it, I really liked it.  It's got that mid 90's HipHop/R&B fusion kind of sound.  The actual video to this song is pretty cool but sadly the only version on youtube isn't very..... good.  The video is quite interesting to watch as it contains influences from her African heritage.  I was able to find it on yahoo - video    I've since seen several of her discs at the discount bookstore.  I have yet to buy any though...
