The Roots covered Fela Kuti – “Water No Get Enemy” at the Global Citizens Fest in Central Park

“Only in a few places did the music performed onstage veer into the neighboring territory of polemic. The Roots performed a moving version of Fela Kuti’s “Water No Get Enemy.” It was the sort of gesture that underscores this band’s value — it’s flexible, improvisationally deft, and unafraid of statement-making. (The show’s credits indicated D’Angelo was to perform with them, but he was nowhere to be seen.” –New York Times
