K’Naan is a Somali refugee who settled in Canada with his family. HIs hip hop is crafted with influences from old line rappers and world music from diverse corners including Youssou N’Dour of Senegal and Wyclef Jean. The track ‘Wavin’ Flag’ of his latest album ‘Troubador’ can barely be described as hip hop, unlike most of the album, but it’s an exceptional track and this week’s Song of the Week.

It’s worth owning the studio version, because it is beautifully produced, but here is a live version done recently…the message is carried more than adequately even if the performance doesn’t have the polish of the album.
