Rich Medina and The Marksmen present The King Meets the President in Africa

The King Meets the President in AfricaFela Ransome Kuti and Michael Joseph Jackson mash in thematic, musical and spiritual unity in ten vibrant instances, with results that deliver pure mind/body juju.
At first glance that conclusion rings counter intuitive, if only because the very idea of wrenching the distinct compositions of these two masters into a singular, workable groove seems improbable —if not outright impossible. Michael is, well, Michael. And as anyone who’s ever mixed or danced to a Fela record can attest, his songs are highly organic, ever evolving, ever changing records, the complete antitheses of modern beat-machine music—not exactly prime candidates for blending.Yet, blend they do. The outcome? Mental and dance-floor dynamite! – Selwyn Seyfu Hinds
