khangas

WTF? khangas for $95???? I have DOZENS of these in my closet, each purchased for under $5. Barneys, get ALL the way the fuck outta here. Also, you could at least have the decency to show us what words are on it. SMFH.

Inspired by Swahili Khanga (Khanga originated from the Swahili people, in Zanzibar specifically): Zaïre c. 1969-1974 The quasi colonialist looking villagers are lining up to march off, under the Zaire flag, to do “Solongo” the forced or voluntary labor program launched by Mobutu Sese Seko on 24 March 1969. The work song “Salongo Alinga Mosala” (Luambo Makiadi) was made into a Soukous (rhumba) hit, and made famous, by Franco & T.P. OK Jazz, and dates from 1969 (though the recording is later). The phrase here is “Salongo Zaire Alinga Mossala”, meaning in Lingala: “[in doing] Voluntary Labor, Zaire loves to work”. There are no selvage marks.
