David Byrne headlined XPoNential Music Festival in Camden last Friday. For his closing number, Byrne decided to cover Janelle Monae's 2015 protest song "Hell You Talmbout".

Byrne and his bandmates shouted out the racially abused victims in a percussive chant to honour them. They shouted names of Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, Amadou Diallo, and Emmett Till while shouting "Say his/her name!"
