As I've mentioned Egyptian Shumba is one of my all time faves:)

Here is "Jock-A-Mo" - the original Iko Iko - by Sugar Boy Crawford (1954)

i didn't know iko iko was a cover, as far as i knew it was based on a composition of sorts by the dixie cups themselves?
egyptian shumba is definitely in a league of its own, i doubt i'll ever hear anything quite like it again.
