Song of the day: Mory Kante- Yé Ké Yé Ké

mory kante yeke yeke

In 1987, a singer called Mory Kanté was a hit. He came from Guinea and that means that the sounds of Africa influence this song, making it a summer hit. And it went up in the charts, reaching number one in some countries, especially in Europe. It was the first hit from Africa which sold over a million records! Later it was remixed and covered, which made a re-entry in the charts. However, these versions were not as successful as the original version. Enjoy
