The world cup in South Africa will definitely be a major highlight of the year 2010! It is not only a highlight for sports aficionados but also a great opportunity to celebrate unity as well as the beautiful versatility of cultures represented by the teams and their fans. The last world cup in Germany had an impressing musical supporting program, with countless stages and artists from all over the world – and there was a huge enthusiasm for Soca music – not only because the Soca Warriors from Trinidad & Tobago were qualified. The Faluma crew decided to contribute something special for the upcoming world cup: a compilation with a great spectrum of music from the Caribbean, the US, Japan and Africa, as well as from various parts of Europe to support the high spirits of this huge event. The title LADUMA! is a popular cheer at soccer matches in South Africa meaning "he scores!" (literally "it thunders") in Zulu.
