Though most world music exists largely under the radar, every once in a while a song comes along that achieves international success. World Hits brings together chart toppers from around the globe. Santana's 1969 version of Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va" turned the rock world upside down, as their version soared up the charts. Cuban musician Mongo Santamaria big crossover hit came in 1963, with his version of the Herbie Hancock composition "Watermelon Man." Another crossover hit comes from the French group Gipsy Kings, whose "Bamboleo" connected the dots between salsa, flamenco and pop. "Lambada" swept first across Europe and then throughout the rest of the world. The hit version of the "forbidden dance" was performed by the French group Kaoma. Manu Dibango's funky "Soul Makossa" became a surprise Top 40 hit in 1973. World music superstar Youssou N'Dour and soul singer Neneh Cherry provide the instantly-recognizable "7 Seconds," while Johnny Clegg and Savuka contributes "Scatterlings of Africa". Miriam Makeba delivers the classic "Pata Pata", an international hit in 1967 that became the first African song to reach the Top 20 on the Billboard pop charts. Rolling Stones' front man Mick Jagger met the enigmatic Peter Tosh in Kingston, Jamaica in 1978. Jagger joins Tosh on a cover of the Temptations hit "(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back." The movie The Harder They Come and it's title song became a cult classic in 1975 and made Jimmy Cliff a household name. A portion of Putumayo's proceeds from the sale of this album will be donated to World Learning in support of their efforts to foster global citizenship through international experiential education and community-driven development programs

Human by Johnny Clegg ( Recording )
8 editions published in 2010 in 4 languages and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the last three decades, English-born, South African-raised Johnny Clegg has built a worldwide following through his fusion of his adopted homeland's traditional music with contemporary instrumentation and accessible lyrics of personal and political expression. Now Clegg has chosen to release Human. Human builds on Clegg's critically acclaimed, massive-selling success with eleven original songs (and a traditional tune) that epitomize his spirit and intensity through yearningly sung lyrics of love and turmoil conveyed by kinetic modern musicianship with an ever-present South African lilt. This is a sound that was embraced by millions of fascinated fans of Paul Simon's Graceland and Peter Gabriel's "Biko" years after Clegg first mixed the ingredients from an insider's point of view
