Wavin' Flag - K'naan

When I'll get older
I'll be stronger
they'll call me freedom 
Just like a wavin flag
and then it goes back
and then it goes back

Born to a throne
stronger than Rome
but violent prone
poor people zone
but its my home
all I have known
where I got grown
streets we would roam

Another version is here

Allah hoo

Traditional sufi folk music from Punjab(pak). The instrument this artist is using is called Toomba, its a variation of ek-taara the one stringed instrument used by wandering sanyasis. The artist is Saieen Zahoor, who was singing at sufi shrines and was recently discovered(so to speak) by the connected(dis-connected) modern world. You can google and learn more about his interesting life story.
