Ebrahim Takes Us On A Trip To D’Angelo’s ‘Africa’

If your only exposure to Ebrahim has been through his occasional work with Slakah the Beatchild, then you've been missing out on the wealth of material that he has to offer. But thank goodness late passes don't have expiration dates. For all those out of the know, the Vancouver-based singer/musician of Pakistani descent has amassed quite an online following on YouTube where he posts videos of him singing, playing, goofing off, or all of the above. His most recent video is of him covering D'Angelo's "Africa" from Voodoo, and it is quite worthy of your attention. Shot on location in his living room/studio and with him sporting the flyest of animal slippers, Ebrahim sings his version of what he calls "the single greatest song ever written." That's up for debate, but what is unequivocally true is the fact that he does a mighty fine job on this remake. His voice is sweet and soulful on the track, which gets an assist on Rhodes from Aaron Hardin, who many may know from Eric Roberson's band where he holds it down on keys. Nice work all around.
