The Mongoose


Since we were just talking about Jamaica, I can’t help but share a song that has been haunting me off-and-on for a couple weeks. Authentic Jamaican Folk Songs is a collection of “work” and “spiritual” songs from the internationally acclaimed choral group, Frats Quintet.  While their song Mongoose (or any of their work for that matter) doesn’t fit my usual dance floor-focused flavor, their rich vocal range and playful lyrics are comforting and somehow familiar.Give it a listen, and see if it’s not stuck in your head for at least the afternoon! – Smokestack
