Harlem Shuffled to Paris

vigonFor those of you who are new to this ride, I’ll let you know now: I have a thing for Black Francophones.  Random, perhaps.  Anyway, I present to you a Moroccan singer named Vigon (pictured left with Stevie Wonder).  Vigon performed in France starting in the mid 1960s, and at one time performed with a rock group called The Lemons.  Here he is singing “Harlem Shuffle” (a 1964 monster hit by Bob & Earl).  Oh, the organ…the organ.
