30 Day Song Challenge - The Sequel: Day 29

Day 29 - a song you like by a band or artist that isn't from North America, Europe or Australia

Eschewing the usual suspects from India or the various bits of Africa, we take you now to Okinawa, whose biggest pop star is a chap called Shoukichi Kina (and his band Champloose). Richard Thompson has covered his biggest hit (Hai Sai Oji-San), but here is his other best-known number. Well, in Okinawa anyway.

And because I love cover versions, here is a group from Madagascar (one of those usual suspects, in fact) doing their version (this is the version I heard first, in fact).
