Re-Percussions

There is no grey hair from the wise old aged, that falls without a rustle of her mother— and as soon as it falls, the earth quakes.

Growing up from ears and swallowers of lyrical punchlines, one person who has fed the African Ancestors of Music rightly in my shrine so far is Worlasi. Music with powerful lyrics that touches and soothes the soul to greatness is what this young African musical god pulls out from within into the hearts of esoteric and descerning listeners. The passion, emotion and energy from Worlasi is what one’s motivation and inspiration-starter would feed on for a soulful boost.

 

 

I have been carefully soaking “Re-percussions” for few days now. One thing that took me to my dancing feet was the timeless rhythm of Uncle Hammer (Da’ Hammer). His kicks hit the eardrums to a bouncing head. Every deaf person would have a feel and move to the echoes and vibrations of the beat in the song in his heart. A great salute to Reggie Rockstone and Kwaw Kese as well. However, I nearly sank into the pit of my soul on smelling the fragrance in the chorus of this African voice of Worlasi.

Worla, I doff my hat for gradually accomplishing the mission…

Go on soaring High.
