Get this earworm out of my head! (and onto my ipod)

I have a piece of a song stuck in my head and it's apparently not enough for google to be of any use. It's an 80's or 90's song, with a guy's voice sort of chanting "ooh ma ma way" in an african-y sounding way with a heavy bass line. I feel like it was used a lot in soundtracks to represent a journey or something like that, because it reminds me of solsbury hill. if anyone can name this song, i know it's you lovely mefites.

If it reminds you of Solsbury Hill, it's not Biko is it?

That multiculti sound was definitely a thing at the time.

That Rusted Root cut has also been on several commercials before, even this year.
