Samuel Yirga – “I Am the Black Gold of the Sun” (Rotary Connection Cover)

I’ve made no secret of the fact that this 1970s psychedelic soul classic is my favorite song of all time.

This new version by Ethiopian piano prodigy Samuel Yirga features the Creole Choir of Cuba and British-Nigerian singer Nicolette.

The added guitars and flutes are a nice touch.
