Belated Music - eh Monday
Reisen, Morgen
scriva
Since the summer has arrived in May, I still feel in the mood for African music and for more somewhat embarassing revelations about my taste in music: I love Reggae. ^_^ I had a long down in my love for it, because it was and still is always a reminder of my failings in love life, but I'm glad that I can listen to the music again without feeling bad.

Enjoy!




Alpha Blondy may not be so well-known as Bob Marley and other Jamaican singers, but he is always worth listening to. Like this song, he has done quite a few songs with strong religious undertones that touch Jewish History, which is very interesting coming from an African singer.  ETA: He is from Côte-d'Ivoire.

I'm gonna sleep by the dead sea
And rise up with the birds from the hills
And clean up my sins
While the birds sing
I'm gonna walk up to the top
Of the rock of sacrifice
Cause i know now,that life
Ain't no dice
Yes i know now,that life is a sacrifice.

I'm gonna withness the rising sun from Masada
Withness jah rising sun from MAsada
Sleep by the dead sea
And rise up with the birds from jah hills
And clean up my sins
When the birds sing
I'm gonna clib to the top
Of the rock of sacrifice
'cause i know now
That the lord had conforted his people
Yes the lord had conforted his people
And the lord had conforted his people.

Elohim YEVARECH ETE MASADA
YEVARECH,ELOHIM ETE MASADA

Withness the rising sun from Masada
Withness JAH rising sun from Masada
Yes from Masada...

that's some great music to start a day. :D

Then my work here is done. :D

The second song listed at the end "Souroukou Logo" is very good as well with this mixture of classic Reggae, African elements and Ska trumpets, but unfortunately, I couldn't find any English translation of the lyrics.

Thank you for sharing this awesome music! My and the boys boogied down whilst washing the dishes. I always love to find new music to listen to and share with my children - you made our evening cleaning time.

How are you doing, by the way? How goes school?


Ah, I'm glad that I could cheer your up. Did you listen to some of the other songs as well?

I'm fine, but not always progressing as good as I could.

I wanted to comment your last post, but I was a bit at loss for words. However, I hope that you are generally fine, as well.
