100% African Rock

[vodpod id=Video.4068575&w=480&h=395&fv=]

Last month South Africans BLK JKS played the Festival Rio Loco in the south of France–for what was a South Africa focus at the festival. They invited Malian Vieux Farka Toure and his band to join them for what was billed as “100% African Rock.”  The result: one and a half hours of good music. Even better, for an encore they bring on Thandiswa Mazwai to perform a cover version of the late Brenda Fassie’s “Too Late for Mama” with the  new 100% Afrian Rock band. Sean Jacobs
