Music Monday

In which the super crew from Sierra Leone, Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew, remix Vampire Weekend and Paul Simon, who are well known, of course, for remixing (appropriating?) sounds from across the African continent. I’m a fan.

Happy Monday.

  1. This is great, thanks for sharing. Made my morning.

    I’m confused as to why people get on Paul Simon’s case for incorporating (and fully acknowledging) different influences in his music. He’s an amazing songwriter who put a lot of non-American music on the map for people who wouldn’t have heard of it otherwise. Not an Elvis or what have you. Besides, there is no purity in music. It’s all about cross-pollination, so we can’t blame him for loving many sounds.
