In less than a month on November 4th Americans will be voting for and electing a new president of the United States. We here at Tambour d'Afrique endorse and fully support Democratic Candidate, Senator Barack Obama.

Since his decision to run for President he has been seen as an agent for Change and Hope, not only in the United States but the world over. An example of his world wide popularity is the influx of support Obama has received through song. Here are a few of my favorites.

American singer/rapper/songwriter, Will.I.Am and friends - We Are The Ones (Obama)

Jamaican singer, Cocoa Tea - Barack Obama

Jamaican singer, Mavado - We Need Barack


Samba Mapangala - Obama Ubarikiwe (Vocal Remix)

Congolese born Kenyan based singer Samba Mapangala (featuring 14 year old rapper Faraka Ndege from Minneapolis) sings 'Obama Ubarikiwe' which means 'Obama be blessed' in Swahili. (The song playing through Imeem is the remix with no rap)

If you are in the U.S. and are eligible, PLEASE VOTE!
