Last week, when I posted Essous and Nino and read they
feel their version of El Manicero is the best African one, I
got this idea. I made a collector with 15 versions of the song.
I am sure you can come up with loads of versions I did
not use, there are so many but here are some of my favourites.
Hope you like them too..
