World Music? What’s that? Well, how did I get here?
Early ’80s Talking Heads were a unique group, new wave and funk intertwined
with rhythms and sounds that were ‘foreign’ – unknowingly for most an introduction to Afrobeat
Angelique Kidjo’s version is naturally more African, it’s also more Afrobeat with plenty of horns.
Whilst always keeping the original songs recognisable, it’s Angelique Kidjo’s powerful optimistic voice that transports this album 40 years.
