Pickathon: King Sunny Adé sows sunshine in the first video from our new Pickathon series
The A.V. Club is pleased to be partnering with the Northwest’s very own Pickathon festival for a new video series. Each month, we’ll be premiering a new video from the fest’s Mt. Hood stage, meaning we’ll be dropping excellent videos on you from all over the musical spectrum.
This month, we’ve got footage of the legendary King Sunny Adé, who, with his band, played “Mo Ro Oju O” in the sun earlier this year. The clip is electrifying and energetic, and should be just what you need to get over this Wednesday hump.
If you want to check out past clips from Pickathon, you can do that over on the fest’s YouTube page.
Pickathon 2017 will be held August 3-6 in Happy Valley, Oregon.
