tUnE-yArDs - "Lady" (ft. Questlove, Akua Naru, Angélique Kidjo) (Fela Kuti cover)
By Brock ThiessenAs recently reported, tUnE-yArDs' Merrill Garbus and Roots drummer Questlove have teamed up for a redo of Fela Kuti's classic Afrobeat jam "Lady." If you're curious how that cover turned out, wonder no longer.

Down below you can check out this modern rework, which also features Akua Naru and Angélique Kidjo.

The single is for an upcoming charity comp called Red Hot + FELA being organized by Red Hot and (RED) organization, and "Lady" marks the beginning of a ten-day fundraising campaign called (RED) RUSH TO ZERO. The aim of the initiative is to end mother-to-child HIV by 2015.

You can learn more about the campaign here and listen to "Lady" below.
