Watch Ezra Koenig and Angélique Kidjo play “Married in a Gold Rush”.
Vampire Weekend front man Ezra Koenig and Angélique Kidjo have teamed up to record a socially distant performance of VW’s “Married in a Gold Rush”. The duet was performed by Kidjo a few weeks ago for the Batonga Foundation fundraiser. Koenig and Kidjo were also accompanied by Dominic James on guitar. Check out the clip below.
“Married in a Gold Rush” appears on Vampire Weekend’s most recent studio LP, “Father of the Bride”. The original includes additional vocals from Danielle Haim.
