Description
Putumayo artists know how to spice things up, bringing beguiling new flavors to 12 rock, R&B, and pop hits. Highlights include Des'ree's lead vocal on "Ain't No Sunshine" and Phoebe Snow's gospel turn on "People Get Ready" (both backed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo); Angélique Kidjo's remake of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child"; and Mo' Horizons' Brazilian spin on "Hit the Road, Jack."

"Imagine Senegalese vocalist Touré Kunda turning Phil Collins' 'In the Air Tonight' into African pop, or French rapper Yannick providing a pop-rap version of Frankie Valli's 'December 1963 (Oh, What a Night)'…. Spanish singer Albert Pla provides new Spanish lyrics for his flamenco-influenced spin on Lou Reed's 'Walk on the Wild Side,' and the Okinawan female vocal quartet Nenes offers new Japanese lyrics on Bob Marley's 'No Woman, No Cry.'… If you're going to embrace a well-known song that someone else has defined, it's best to try something different—and the artists do exactly that on this excellent compilation."—All Music Guide
