Fool’s Gold Album, Surprise Hotel (mp3) – World Sound Outta LA, Heavy on the Afrique

by Landry on June 23, 2009

This festive track, heavy on African pop, slides along with obvious influence by Ali Farke Toure. Listen further for the surprise: a Hebrew weave. Super fun for dance and celebration on steamy summer nights.
