Wilbur Sargunaraj - "Love Marriage"

Wilbur Sargunaraj is the latest viral Youtube sensation out of Tamil Nadu. His website describes him thusly:

Dance King, Performer, Drummer and Tamilian, Wilbur Sargunaraj is one of the most original musicians to grace the industry. His super hit song "Blog Song" is just one of the killer dance tunes that is having people across the globe begging for more music. Wilbur has created his own fresh and original style called Vocal Chanting which combines elements of his native India with super killer techno dance beats and bass that is super deep.

You can check out his latest video, "Love Marriage", below. It's both catchy and mind-numbingly repetitive. Love the aunties-cum-dancing-girls.


Of course, you may have gathered that Sargunaraj is not really an actual person. As far as anyone can work out, he is the Borat-esque alter ego of Canadian percussionist Paul Benjamin (credited as Sargunaraj's producer).

Not saying this guy is a comic genius by any means, but he's good for a chuckle. And I confess I've had "Love Marriage" flitting in and out of my head for the last few days.
The below clip shows footage of a Sargunaraj live performance. The accompanying song is called "Chicken 65", a tribute to a famous South Indian dish.
