Angélique Kidjo’s Remain in Light

Music, Latin and world

Time Out says

When the Talking Heads dropped Remain in Light in 1980, no one had heard anything like it. Heavily influenced by Fela Kuti, the album was a punk rock take on Afrobeat, funk and world-music. That groundbreaking record getd a brand new sound when Kidjo performs it in its entirety, putting her own West African spin on the Heads’ reinterpretation of West African music. Things are about to get meta.
