In the name of love: Africa celebrates U2

Pub. Date:
When African-American producer Shawn Amos visited Africa to help build housing, he had the inspiration to assemble an all-star cast of African musical luminaries to record U2 songs, with proceeds from the recording going to the Global Fund, a charity that seeks to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria in Third World countries. Like the best covers albums, the tracks here deconstruct and reconfigure already-great songs, making them shine in new ways. Highlights include Angelique Kidjo's take on "Mysterious Ways," which underscores the rhythmic elements and adds new melodic ideas. The enclosed booklet includes extensive information about the artists and the countries they represent.
