The Come Again: Name That Tune

[audio:http://www.okayafrica.com/wp-content/uploads/06-Burundi-Ragga.mp3|titles=NAME THAT TUNE: WHAT SONG IS THIS?]

Granted we haven't done that much digging around, but we have been listening to this for years and have no idea what this song is. All we know is that it's amazing, deserves to be our third Come Again,  and is played non-stop in clubs all over West Africa. Bajah (of Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew) told us that even he didn't know, but back home they call it "Burundi Ragga"or something in that vein.

I know SOMEONE out there will school us on it. Feel free to son us on twitter (@okayafrica). We need the name and artist of this track! And we want to know where it's from, the language, what the lyrics mean - we want it all!
