    Sting joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for a “Classroom Instruments” rendition of The Police’s “Don’t Stand So Close to Me”

    Sting joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for a "Classroom Instruments” rendition of The Police’s “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” The Police’s “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” became one of the Covid-19 self-isolation anthems. Jimmy Fallon with mighty The Roots invited Sting for "Classroom Instruments” rendition of this song. They didn’t stay so close to each other, they all shoot separate videos at their own homes using home “instruments”, and the effect is brilliant as always. The video was recorded as part of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon “At Home” edition.     Sting, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots version of “Don’t Stand So Close to Me”…

    KOKOROKO came back with “Carry Me Home”

    London’s afrobeat sensation KOKOROKO shared a new song called “Carry Me Home”. This beautiful song reminds us of every positive thing from the band’s debut EP. It’s rhythmic, peaceful, harmonic, uplifting, soulful and melodic. This slow-rolling track has some brass-heavy accents which brings to mind Manu Dibango’s “Soul Makossa”. “Carry Me Home” is inspired by the wonderful Dele Sosimi, a Nigerian-British musician, keyboard player, and member of both Fela Anikulapo-Kuti’s Egypt 80 and Femi Kuti’s Positive Force band. The track was inspired by conversations with the Dele Sosimi, whose technical ability in bridging the gap between the West African afrobeat sound of his roots, and the London energy of his…
