K'naan: a young singer from Somalia

In exile from Somalia because of civil-war, the singer-songwriter K'naan has emigrated to Canada.

In Jonquiere, Canada, students created an elaborate lip-dub video to his best-known song, "Wavin' Flag."

On we see K'naan giving an unplugged performance of 3 tunes.

His lyrics reference famous people and locations so much that I like him for geography class.
