Found in the Shuffle: Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars - "Seconds"

Song: Seconds
Artist: Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars
Album: In the Name of Love: Africa Celebrates U2

This has great energy. It's obviously a U2 cover, but the All-Stars completely made it their own. Best of all, they made it African without compromising the basic Western roots of the song. I wish more world music was like this.

(By the way, Bob reviewed the full album a few months ago.)

Labels: ,
