Woyaya was the name of an album by Osibisa. One of the earliest 'world' bands though they were not catagorised by that moniker at the time.
Avatar 9:53am Joe McG:

@pantz: Not handy, but maybe I'll play it next week.

@Alex: Nice song to get centered to. :)
  10:37am Mike Wolf:

@mariano When the first plane hit, the news etc were still treating it as an accident. When the second plane hit and it became instantly clear it wasn’t an accident, the actual emergency of it became everyone’s awareness in the city. Anyone watching TV or listening to radio was hearing nothing but Twin Towers, an emergency alert would’ve just interrupted whatever reporting was going on moment to moment.
