While it's not a combination that I would have immediately thought of, DJ Rich Medina has produced an album of Fela Kuti/Michael Jackson mashups which is pretty remarkable. Entitled "The King Meets the President in Africa," the album layers Kuti's Afrobeat rhythms and horns with Jackson's singing to produce an amazing mix. I intended to listen to one song, and ended up listening to all of them in one sitting.
