I literally just heard the tune, Yalira, by The Very Best, a trio consisting of two European DJs and a Malawi-born singer, and I can't stop hitting REPEAT. It's making me feel that good. And man, I could use some of that right now.

Here is the group's bio, via their MySpace page:
Esau Mwamwaya was born in Mzuzu in Malawi, East Africa. He grew up in the capital, Lilongwe, where he played drums in various bands such as Masaka Band. He was a good friend of the legendary Evison Matafale and they played together for several years before he was killed in Malawi police custody in 2003. In 1999 Esau Mwamwaya moved to London, England ran a second-hand furniture shop in Clapton, East London until Setpember 2008 when he returned to Malawi. Esau's shop was on the same street as Radioclit's old studio, and after the Radioclit boy's bought a bike from Esau they invited him to one of their house warming parties They made friends and started working on music together. Three years later and the project has gotten it's name The Very Best. The Album 'Warm heart Of Africa' is out worldwide now!
