Angélique Kidjo featuring Ezra Koenig – I Think Ur A Contra [live ’11]

• “I Think Ur A Contra” live in the TV studio, March, 2011. Thanks to Angelique Kidjo.

8.8 “Excellent Songwriter from Benin / England”

I stumbled upon this whilst looking for the original Vampire Weekend track from 2010 to embed elsewhere. WOW! What a version, completely exquisite, and completely different from the original classic. Snapped this up immediately on MP3. It was filmed in Boston at WGBH’s Brighton studios in March 2011, and first aired on WGBH-2 at 9pm, June 15, 2011. The duet was subsequently featured on her album “Spirit Rising”, which documented much of her 90 minute special, and was issued early in 2012. An inspired collaboration if ever I heard one.
