Here is a song that was a hit! This is "Waka-waka". Popularized by Shakira for the 2010 football world cup, it was actually composed and performed originally by the Cameroonian group "Golden sounds" in 86
Here is a version of this song accompanied by the kalimba, here are the lyrics:
Zamina mina, eh eh, waka waka eh eh eh, zamina mina zankalewa, ana wa ah ah x 2
Django eh eh, django eh eh, zamina mina zankalewa, ana wa ah ah x 2
A pattern on a binary 3-beat rhythm, as already covered with other melodies in April 2021 and May 2022. Good music and happy holidays!<
