My Favorite African Musical Tracks, and perhaps Howard's

edited January 2015 in Songs
In connection with a couple of conversations that I have posted about how Howard might have felt about modern African music, here are a few songs and orchestral pieces that I particularly enjoy, and I hope that Howard would have liked as well:

1. "Mother Africa"- THE POWER OF ONE
2. Nana- "Kaboyi"- DUMA*
3. "Busa"- THE LION KING
4. Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the Mint Juleps- "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"
5. Angelique Kidjo- "We Are One"- THE LION KING 2: SIMBA'S PRIDE
6. "The Rainmaker"- THE POWER OF ONE
7. "Noyana" (a Zulu folk song)
8. Phiry- "The Bird Sings"- DUMA
9. Closing Theme to AFRICA'S ELEPHANT KINGDOM [Discovery Channel Pictures, 1997]
10. "One by One"
11. Lebo M- "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"
12. Lebo M-"It's Time"
13. Miriam Makeba- "Qongqothwane" (aka "The Click Song")
14. "Duma Orphaned"- Score from DUMA Soundtrack
15. "Circle of Life" (instrumental demo)- THE LION KING
16. Angelique Kidjo (feat. Dave Matthews)- "Iwoya"
17. Teddy Pendergrass- "The Power of One" (THE POWER OF ONE Original Soundtrack)
18. "Timon's Traveling Theme"- THE LION KING 1 1/2

In my honest opinion, NOBODY cannot help but fall in love with such emotionally charged music as this.
