Mavis Staples Narrates The Animated Story of Ben & Charlie

Maybe you've enjoyed one or both of Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite's collaborative albums (No Mercy In This Land is out this summer).  Maybe you weren't aware of them.  Or maybe the thought of this pairing -- two artists of different generations -- was a bit of a head-scratcher.

Anti Records has got something that will address all of those situations.

In this short video, narrated by Mavis Staples and directed by Piotr Kabat, their biographies and musical relationship is explored amidst some artfully done drawings.  We think you'll enjoy.

The pair starts a US tour at the end of this month, including two sold-out shows at Chicago's Thalia Hall (7/30 & 8/1).
