Timi Dakolo Remakes Majek Fashek's 'Send Down The Rain'

It's quite unusual to have Timi Dakolo, a died-in-the-wool soul vocalist, elect to cover a reggae track, but a musician who's worth his salt is always ready to cross genre boundaries and stretch the limits of his versatility.
 
On this new version of Majek Fashek's timeless hit, Send Down The Rain, Dakolo brings his own vibe but still gives off the same sincerity that makes the original what it is. Don't expect to hear the instrumentals of the first though: they've given way to a more upbeat rhythm that is more techno than reggae. But everything works, and that's why you should download it here.
