Song of the day: Angelique Kidjo - Lonlon

I was wondering what my first post after my come back to be about, really gave it a good thought and after all decided to draw your attention to this splendid interpretation of Ravel's Bolero sung by the Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo in Yoruba (as far as I could find info), a language spoken in West Africa. I chose this song cause it perfectly represents the full extent of emotions I am overwhelmed with due to my return back to my very very first love - music. Classic music lovers may not be impressed at all, but to me this is one of the finest versions of Bolero I've ever heard.
