Behind the scenes of the ‘Lady’ cover w/ Questlove x tUnE-yArDs [Video]

Just a few days ago, the world was made privy to an exclusive tribute to Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti in the form of an all-star remake of his classic song “Lady” featuring Roots drummer Questlove, the tUnE-yArDs music project, singer Angélique Kidjo and MC Akua Naru, and now that same world is offered a glimpse into the song’s creation thanks to a special behind-the-scenes video put together by the Red Hot Organization and the (RED) project.

For those who missed it the first time (get caught up here), the song is both a tribute to Fela and the jump-off of a ten-day fundraising campaign to assist (RED) and Red Hot in their ongoing battle against the AIDS epidemic, which they’ve dubbed the (RED) RUSH TO ZERO.

Take a peek inside the studio below, and buy the “Lady” cover on iTunes to throw some change towards the cause.
