SaRaha – Ca Plane Pour Moi (Rhizom

Release Date: Out Now

I think SaRaha is the first Swedish-Tanzanian artist I’ve featured on this blog which instantly makes here the best but even if I’d had a glut of submissions from Swedish-Tanzanians then this cover of the classic French pop hit ‘Ca Plane Pour  Moi’ would put her at the top of the pile. While the energy is still there like the original, SaRaha has given this a real make over with lyrics translated into Swahili among other languages. Then there’s the music which borrows from Afro Beat and Scandi-Pop to make a suitably fun and bouncy homage to the Plastic Bertrand original from 1978.
