tUnE-yArDs, ?uestlove, Angelique Kidjo, Akua Naru - Fela Kuti's Lady
Reappropriating Fela's Lady
Tune-Yards Merrill Garbus is a musician from Connecticut deeply infused with African dance music - like a spiritual AFS student gone very very right. Paul Heck at Red Hot and I partnered on putting out this track to support Red Hot and Product (RED), bringing together ?uestlove, Merrill, Angelique Kidjo and Akua Naru (who writes an amazing rap that flips the tape on Fela's Lady. I'll also post the video Paul shot of the making of the track.
