  • Description Waka Waka! Who doesnt know these famous words of the worldwide number one hit. Here is our version of the well known african traditional, using the original Waka Waka chorus, sampled with full permisson in two infectious mixes by Christian Prommer & Alex Barck.
    This huge hit based on Zangalewa, an traditional African song adapted by a Makossa group from Cameroon called Golden Sounds. First released in 1986, the song became such a hit for Golden Sounds, that they changed their name to Zangalewa. The song pays tribute to african Skirmishers (a.k.a Tirailleurs) during World War II and can be translated as Where are you from?
    Christian Prommer and Alex Barck were pleased to get their hands on the original, after they release of their album Alex & The Grizzly on Derwin Recordings. They decided to re-work the original in their own special way: organic and electronic, between techno modernism, afro spiritual, while amalgamating garage sounds like Tony Humphries edit of Ma Foom Bey from Cultural Vibe, or certain tribal elements. They created an idiosyncratic house tune.
