Georgia on My Mind is a “Spanglish” cover version of the classic Ray Charles song. Performed by LA band, Las Cafeteras, it’s intended to be an anthem for the upcoming Georgia runoffs and promote voter participation. Having already amassed 70,000 views on youtube, the video for this jam is pretty impressive. It features some excellent photography and a vintage Ford Mustang convertible (which is in pristine condition).
The song is a creative and interpretation, putting a truly original spin on a familiar track. In a performance that’s joyous and lush with enthusiasm, somehow these guys seem to make the genre-blended sound work. The music is very professional, and the vocals measure up to the legacy of the song. The overall vibe is upbeat and positive, as the artists are hoping to “get voters dancing all the way to the polls in Georgia.”
