Amadou and Mariam - Hope (Fat Freddy's Cover)

Malian/French superstars Amadou & Mariam bring Afrobeat to the kitchen for their cover of HOPE, Fat Freddys Drop's iconic song for a generation.

One of best-selling and best-loved acts to come out of Africa, the blind, married musical team made the HOPE cover in Paris for NZ TV series Making Tracks. The travel show with a musical twist where overseas artists are invited to record cover versions of revered Kiwi songs is fronted by New Zealand musical maverick and DJ, Nick D.

Fat Freddy's Drop HOPE was officially released on limited edition 10" vinyl in 2003.
