This is a great song by Miriam Makeba (amazing South African singer and activist, and wife of Hugh Masekela...she died in 2008).  The name of the song is "Pata Pata".  It's now being used in a car commercial for Honda, but I remember this song from when I was a kid.  Sometimes Madison Ave actually has's a video of a performance of the song along with a video of her singing "Soweto Blues" at the Graceland Africa concert from 1987:
