    Thanks Brian and John

    a little sidenote:

    Doudou Fini
    Zaho Tanora + Iadan’i Toto are both Doudou Fini, the title as well as the music.

    What kind of music is this? Is it a Madagascar varient of soukous or something different? Its light and airy and it making moving house bearable.

    Nice one! The style like in ‘Sabina’ is called Watcha-Watcha, a take on Kenyan Benga music :)
