    I'm a huge fan of Matt's. If you go to his website,

    Where The Hell Is Matt?

    you can see the earlier videos. 2005 & 2006 use the same song, with a little difference in the arrangements, but it's haunting & beautiful. My favorite of all of them is 2006. I like that version of the song, and the scenery is amazing.

    He also has a FAQ section that explains what he's doing, why, how, etc.

    Thanks for posting this, and for the site (Lobes). It was actually quite touching.

    I love that video. I've seen it a bunch of times and it always makes me glad.

    And the song is amazing.

    I think the first song is sung in a dying language, which is really cool imo

    On the homepage, I clicked on Dancing '06 to see that vid. What is that song? I remember hearing it '94-'96.

    Here's what he said about that (in FAQ page):

    What’s the name of the song in the first video?

    “Sweet Lullaby Dancing Remix” by Deep Forest.

    What’s the name of the song in the second video?

    The second song was created specifically for the new video. The music was written by a composer I knew named Garry Schyman. He brought in LA studio musicians to play live instruments over the same vocals heard in “Sweet Lullaby.” I watched them put the whole thing together in about 10 hours. The song doesn’t really have a name, so you can call it whatever you want.

    Okay. Then what’s the deal with the girl singing?

    The girl you hear singing is named Afunakwa. She comes from a place named Fataleka in the Solomon Islands. The song she is singing is a traditional lullaby named “Rorogwela.” The recording was made in 1970 by a UNESCO ethnomusicologist named Hugo Zemp.

    Boy...that was a lot of names.

    ”Rorogwela” is part of the oral tradition among the Baegu tribe, passed down through generations for who-knows-how-long, and was thankfully preserved while there were members of the tribe who could still sing it.

    The song is now a part of the internet video tradition among computer geeks, and is passed through high-bandwidth fiber optic cable to who-knows-where a bajillion times a day.

    I find this to be nifty.

    No one seems to know if Afunakwa is still alive. If she is, I would very much like to meet her someday.

    What are the lyrics to the song?

    I’m glad you asked. From what I can gather, the song is a lullaby sung by an older sister to her younger brother. Here are the approximate lyrics:

    Young brother, young brother, be quiet
    You are crying, but our father has left us
    He has gone to the place of the dead
    To protect the living, to protect the orphan child

    Are you sobbing yet?

    I don’t care what the lyrics are. How can I get the song from the second video?

    Unfortunately, you can’t. The only way to hear it is with the video. This is not up to me, so don’t come whining.
    He's so funny, just so....direct. Blunt, even.

    Oh duh me!

    “Sweet Lullaby Dancing Remix” by Deep Forest.

    Right smack in front of me.

    Apologies for massively obtuse brain fart.

    I'd heard of the guy but this is the first time I've seen a video of all his dancing in one places. It's extremely cool, thanks for posting.
