New York City Meets Warm Heart of Africa

This has very little to do with China and Africa -- call it New York City and Africa -- but swamped as I am with grading papers, article deadlines, traveling to give talks, thinking what I will say during my seven minutes on a World Bank/IMF Annual Meeting panel this week, I want to share 3:42 minutes of escapism: a video of The Very Best's hit song Warm Heart of Africa with guest artist Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend joining Esau Mwamwaya of The Very Best. This sweet and jolly song combines pieces of my life (Columbia University and Malawi where my South African husband lived for five years). Enjoy.
