m.i.a. and wilcannia mob

since picking up the new m.i.a. disc the other day, i have been hooked. ‘paper planes’ has got to one of the best songs of the year, hands down. but, up and down “kala” is some good stuff.

another banger on the album is the song ‘mango pickle down river’ a colabo between m.i.a. and a group of australian kids called the wilcannia mob. apparently the boys released the song ‘down river’ back in 2002, although the “kala” version of the song is a bit different…both versions are real cool. you can check out the original version of the song here, and while your there check out their bio (interesting stuff).

not sure if this is official, but here is the video treatment of the song ‘boyz’ from m.i.a.’s “kala”
