Nafurahi



Pharrell Williams made his song "Happy" freely available to use and encouraged people all over the world to make their own videos for the song. Hundreds of groups have taken him up on the offer, but most are lip-dubs or dancing to the original recording. This one is a full cover version in Swahili, liberally sprinkled with French, from the city of Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The performers, from KivuYouth Entertainment, are awesome. While you listen, keep i mind that “Nafurahi” translates to “Happy.” (via Metafilter)
