Requiem on a balafon

A German vibraphone-player and a Malinese balafon-player doing a cover of Gainsbourg’s Requiem pour un con. Found it on Blundetto’s blog, loved it instantly. It’s all in that indestructable beat, the remarkable sound of the vibes and the balafon (the instruments are related, see Kouyaté and Neerman play live here). The reprise is on K&N’s upcoming new album. You do know Serge’s original, don’t you?
