Music from Canada/Somalia – K’naan

K’naan was born in Somalia and spent most of his childhood in Mogadishu.  His real name Keynaan, means “traveler” in the Somali language.  When he was 13, K’naan and his family moved to Canada.  He rose to prominence with the success of his single “Wavin’ Flag”, which was chosen as Coca-Cola’s promotional anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.  We have featured other songs by K’naan on this site so also check them out.  This is one of my favourite called “Bang Bang” which was released in 2010 and features Adam Levine of Maroon 5.
