New video: Calypso Rose – “Wah Fu Dance!” featuring Angelique Kidjo
‘Wah Fu Dance!’ celebrates the triumph of children descending from slaves finally coming back home. A joyful celebration about a symbol filled with history, the same way Calypso’s music treats societal topics with subtlety.
Calypso Rose performs this song with Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo, emblematic figure and winner of three Grammys thanks to her committed lyrics. “When I met Angelique Kidjo, I instantly felt that we had been sisters in another life.” Rose is 21 years older than her. The two figures of Caribbean and African music transform the title into a heady and sunny song, for a universal ‘Wah Fu Dance’.
