Gimme Shelter
Angelique Kidjo & Joss Stone

Angelique Kidjo recently performed in Bombay, and though I did not go for the show, I did read a lot about the electric performance she gave at NCPA (National Center for Performing Arts). She got people to dance on the stage with her, which at NCPA is, usually, a hard thing to achieve.

Today, I have here a song from her 2007 album Djin Djin: ‘Gimme Shelter’, a cover of the Rolling Stones classic, which she sang with Joss Stone. Kidjo brings a funky feel to this already brilliant song, thus transforming it into a different piece of work altogether and taking it to newer heights.

Kidjo, as referred to earlier, is known for her enthusiastic and fun live performances. This just comes across in this song.

Note: I do not own the copyrights of this song. It is uploaded for all to listen and enjoy.
