Warm Heart of Africa

Esau Mwamwaya and Ezra Koenig

Even more tropical goodness out from The Very Best this week, as the title-track for the upcoming Warm Heart of Africa drops into the blogosphere. Featuring Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, this upbeat, calypso-like Afro-pop gem bounces along with a joyful innocence. And if you missed it, be sure to check out the excellent “Ntende Uli” which was released on Tuesday. Look for the album in the fall, via Green Owl.
