Music Monday

I’m just back from a weekend away so this is my contribution for today. Just a little something to start your week off.

From Ivoirian reggae artist Tiken Jah Fakoly comes “Un Africain A Paris,” a cover of Sting’s “Englishman in New York.” Lyrically, very interesting contrast between the two versions. And, while Sting has Branford Marsalis, I think I prefer Fakoly’s.
