This week's song will require a 13 minutes of your attention but I hope you won't regret it. It is called Allah Hu and is performed by Faiz Ali Faiz Qawwali ensemble, guitarist Chicuelo and two flamenco singers, Duquende and Miguel Poveda.

La canción de la semana #108

And now for something completely different: I'd like to introduce a Senegalese hip-hop trio Daara J. They rap in French and in their native Wolof language, but in Esperanza (as you may have guessed) you will also hear Spanish. And if you like what you hear, you may even enjoy an hour-long live performance of Daara J at WOMAD 2004.
