In the lead-up to the annual Music Freedom Day on 3 March 2016, I was proud to produce this music video for a unique track with a group of today’s most powerful Arab and Iranian revolutionary artists joining together to cover Fela Kuti’s most powerful political song, ‘Zombie’.
“Music is the weapon of the future!” So declared Africa’s legendary artist, Fela Kuti, shortly before his death. It was true in Nigeria a generation ago, and it’s still true across Africa, the Middle East, and indeed the world today.
“Zombie” Video produced by Reda Zine.
Recorded by Voodoo Sound Club (with Banda di Russi at Duna Studio Italy), feat. Seun Kuti ( Nigeria) l7a9d /El Haqed (Morocco), Ramy Essam (Egypt), Rushzilla (Egypt), Salome Mc (Iran), Refugees of Rap (Syria/Palestine) I Remixed by Afnorock and Deda in 2015.
