TV On the Radio Visit Amadou & Mariam In New Video

Considering TV on the Radio have shown very little regard for genre boundaries over the course of their four album career, it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see two members from the Brooklyn band popping up in the new music video from Afro-pop duo Amadou & Mariam

Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone sing backup on "Wily Kataso," an easy-going worldbeat jam from the Malian husband and wife that would sound great on a summer playlist. As for the video, silhouettes of lithe ladies dance across glowing screens while the TVOTR boys perform with the critically-celebrated couple. So that's an added incentive to check it out. 

Watch the video above to hear what happened when Brooklyn met Mali.
