K’NAAN And Paper Tongues; Wave Your Flag Tour – 2010

Sometimes we like to pat ourselves on the back for spotting the talent train before it pulls into the station, and this is one of those moments. We have been working with K’NAAN since before Troubador exploded on the scene and “Waving Flag” put Somalia on the global map for being more than a war torn country. Paper Tongues delivered a fiery debut with Ride to California is ready to take on new challenges.

What with the 2 artists specializing in blurring the genre lines, and appealing to such a variety of fans, it was only natural that they would meet, greet, and make musical mash up babies together. They take their unique collaboration on the road on the K’naan Wave Your Flag Tour 2010; with special Guest Paper Tongues .

Download this free mash up track and enjoy a taste of what the tour might bring to a city near you.
