Speaking of dancing, let’s listen to Fela Kuti.
Some great dancing videos.
Some dancing-fools for your Monday morn…
Love the dancing in these vids, thought you’d might like it too! Lighting Hopkins is one of the last truly great blues musicians in my book (before butt-rock blues came along and ruined all the interesting rhythms and syncopations, I hate guitar solos), this video comes from a documentary about Lighting entitled “The Blues According to Lighting Hopkins” it’s pretty cool to see him in his prime playing at a small party with two amazing dancing girls.
Bo Diddley is probably one of my favorite rock’n rollers along with Chuck Berry and Little Richard, he pioneered a really unique guitar sound and rhythmic drive, he has a great back up dancer and guitarist nicknamed “the Duchess” you can see them move in this video here.
Just scratching the surface… it’s always time for a Soul Train line!
