Marcus O'Dair's songs in gobbledygook

Music journalist Marcus O'Dair brings in a selection of tunes that mean absolutely nothing, lyrically speaking, of course. Featuring tracks in the made-up language of Kobaïan, created by French prog-rockers Magma; and the gob-smacking, mouth aerobics of Norwegian artist Sidsel Endresen.
