Here’s a cool concept; mix up music from Fela Kuti and apply De La Soul vocals. The result? Fela Soul…the De La remix project by Amerigo Gazaway (Gummy Soul). Here’s a vid:
Check out the rest of the project: Fela Soul
From the creator:
What do you get when you put together afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and rap pioneers De La Soul? You get Fela Soul; a musical tapestry created by Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazaway. More than just a clever title, Fela Soul is an 8-track, 33 minute journey into the world of afrobeat rhythms, funky horn riffs, and classic hip-hop gems. Using dozens of hand-picked samples from the Nigerian instrumentalist and political figure Fela Kuti, and 8 carefully-chosen acapellas from the Native Tongue rap trio De La Soul, Amerigo seamlessly intertwines the two into something completely new and original.
