Galactic recruited a number of fellow New Orleans based musicians and other Crescent City luminaries to contribute to their “Wash Your Hands” video. “Wash Your Hands” is a calypso song from the 1930s that takes on a new importance during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Members of The Revivalists, Mike Dillon, Ivan Neville, Boyfriend, Chali 2na, Erica Falls, Papa Mali, Anders Osborne, , Trombone Shorty and Anjelika ‘Jelly’ Joseph are among those who join Galactic in the video. Each contributor recorded their portion at home.

Steve Kelly produced the video, which features lyrics adapted for COVID-19 by The Revivalists’ Andrew Campanelli. Galactic’s Rob Mercurio produced and mixed the music. The band asks those who can to donate to their Tip-It Foundation. Watch the “Wash Your Hands” video below:
