Spoek, Petite Noir, Zaki Ibrahim & More Cover Fela Kuti's 'Zombie'

Watch Spoek's cover of Fela Kuti's "Zombie" featuring Zaki Ibrahim, Petite Noir and more.


Here's the visuals for one of the highlights off the Fela Kuti tribute compilation RED HOT + FELA. Spoek leads a tripped-out, electronic interpretation of Fela's massive "Zombie," enlisting help from fellow South African artists Petite Noir, Zaki Ibrahim, The Frown and Nicolaas Van Reenen. The Kent Andreasen-directed music video showcases the clothing of SA designer Floyd Avenue and "follows Spoek on a tropical, shadow filled expedition, sporting Avenue's designs." Watch it below.
