In the video, Zap Mama sings “I Shall Be Released” with American vocalist and seven-time Grammy winner Al Jarreau. The performance was aired on French television network Taratata. The New York Times review of Zap Mama’s performance with Al Jarreau at Carnegie Hall describes the show: “The quintet, accompanying itself on African percussion instruments and at one point beating its microphones like drums, sang a program of multilingual songs that were determinedly upbeat. “We got to think positive!” it chanted at one point. “Respect what’s different and you will wake up from the nightmare.” Leading the audience to take parts in a layered African Pygmy song, the group not only sang the multicultural gospel but helped spread it.”
