CALABASH One of the most exciting and progressive aspects of Senator Barack Obama's candidacy is the incredibly wide range of people he continues to energize and inspire. He has become a true world figure now. One way this can be seen is in the music Obama is inspiring globally. Here is a sampling of some of the tastiest worldbeat music currently being produced as tributes to the hope Barack Obama is bringing to people everywhere.

Track 1: Mighty Sparrow - 'Barack the Magnificent'

First up from Trinidad, is Mighty Sparrow, the Calypso King of the World, whose career spans over five decades and whose music spans the globe.

The respect of the world that we now lack, If you want it back, then vote Barack! Because this time we come out to vote!

Stop the war! Stop genocide in Darfur! No matter what, Get health care for who have not! The Foreign Relations Committee, Can attest to his tenacity, For homeland and job security.

He stood his ground When the war was a conception, Said it was wrong, So he didn't go along, Jim Baker and Lee Hamilton They said of Barack's opinion, "He's a man of resplendent vision! ...

Barack! Barack! On the Senate Affair Committee he's a giant! Barack! Dignifiedly resilient, And with rock star status he's Barack The Magnificent! ...

Barack! Barack! The first black President to lead this mighty nation! Barack! We'll regain worldwide respect with Obama's vision and excellent comprehension!
