Most attendants didn't even get to witness this as the impromptu performance took place backstage, while Damon AlbarnBaaba Maal, Amadou & Mariam, Tony Allen, M3NSA, Dead PrezM1Afrikan Boy, Led Zep bassist John Paul Jones and a host of others. The whole vibe is best summed up by Shingai near the end when she shouts "anyone who wants to jam, feel free, it's an open space." Watch McCartney and crew above.
