After meeting Afro Fiesta a few nights earlier in downtown Cape Town at one of their gigs, we set up a time to shoot and record some of their songs outside. We all met up and were excited to record but once Mark started testing his equipment, he realized the car battery we were using to power the gear was dead. Now what? Fortunately, the band’s manager had just rolled up in his SUV, so Enzo had the idea of using the battery inside the vehicle! About 15 minutes later, we had power and were rolling. “Equal Rights” was the song they had sound checked with. We loved it so much that we asked them to perform it again– here it is!.
