iTunes Review

The Red Hot organization has paired unlikely musical collaborators together in a wide variety of styles over the last 20 years to raise awareness about AIDS and its related diseases. None have been more apt than the two collections celebrating the music of Fela Kuti, who died from AIDS-related complications in 1997. After the star-studded hip-hop, soul, and funk extravaganza of 2002’s Red Hot + Riot, this second effort mashes together a wider variety of talent from the U.S. and Africa. This time we go from the new-generation African Afrobeat artist Baloji (who does an authentic take on “Buy Africa”) to Kronos Quartet with TV on the Radio (on a spooky version of “Sorrow Tears and Blood”) to My Morning Jacket with Tune-Yards and Alabama Shakes (on a hypnotic take of “Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake A.M."). Featuring ?uestlove, Angelique Kidjo, and Akua Naru as well as Tune-Yards, “Lady” is both the best song and the one that (along with Baloji) stays closest to Fela's politicized spirit and funk vision, even if they shift the song’s meaning.
