i need you like my kidney

i heard this fantastically cheesy line in a zouk-love song in the taxi on the way home from the train station. zouk is a music style that originated in the french Caribbean. its slow, rythmic, sensual, and usually has ridiculously cheesy lyrics (like the one above!). the lyrics are usually a mixture of french, creol, english and portugese. i became familiar with zouk in burkina, i believe its popular throughout west africa.

cours de danse zouk (zouk dance class!!)

here's some zouk-love: sexy lady

here's a faster song, of zouk, not zouk-love. the costuming is so funny!

anyways, as you can see i made it back "home" safe to montreal.
