Cool video: The Very Best feat. Ezra Koenig

Via Pitchfork + mtvU:

In honor of my friend Raka, who left yesterday to work on a World Bank study in Malawi, here’s a happy little song by The Very Best (Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya+ Euro production team Radioclit) featuring Ezra Koenig from everybody’s favorite boat shoe sportin’ Afropop appropriators, Vampire Weekend!

“Warm Heart of Africa” is the title track from TVB’s debut album, a disc that really should have found its way into my 2009 Favorites list. Also be sure to check out the group’s riff on M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes”.

Happy Trails Raks!
