Fun with Covers 2: Yay!/Sina Hali

Here's a nice version of Nancy Ajram's "Yay!" by Mask Girls. The track is renamed "Sina Hali," lyrics are translated into Kiswahili and the music is translated into Tanzanian bongo flava pop (and influenced by bhangra, sounds like). (Credit: The Elephant's Child via Hawgblawg)

First the original:

Second the cover:

I love this because it recycles Lebanese pop through South Asia for East African ears.
