Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew Cover Vampire Weekend + Paul Simon

Watch Sierra Leone's Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew cover Vampire Weekend's "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" and Paul Simon's "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes"

In this live acoustic video, Sierra Leone's Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew take back two songs that reference traditional African sounds and make it all their own. On a rooftop in Brooklyn, B+DEC twist Vampire Weekend's "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" into Paul Simon's "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes" while adding their own take on the diamonds issue. For more on B-DEC, visit their website for two free songs and their video for "Jacky Jacky," filmed in Sierra Leone.
