Name of song needed which was played in all the bars?

Just got back from two weeks at the Voyager. Had a superb holiday. Whilst on holiday and out on our travels we kept hearing the same song. Mambo Mambo sana. Can anyone explain who produced this song or provide a link to it please.

Its called the Jambo song and is played everywhere for the tourists. Most people take home a copy on CD.

Have a listen on You Tube.....

This is the album the song comes from and is available on Amazon. I'm sure someone will probably give you a copy as it does get of year nerves afer hearing it so often!

The song is called Jambo by the safari Sound Band...... We have it on The Best of African Songs CD which we purchased in Kenya. It's available online here: http://www.sternsmusic.com/disk_info/KE31001

Hope this helps
