My mother I love coming to see you But this route has so many thorns. "Izivunguvungu is a song inspired by Zulu traditional music genre called Isicathamiya. It is a male opera style of music that Zulu Migrant workers performed together occasionally at their places of dwelling. The musical inspiration is mostly Isicathamiya - a harmonious style of music. We blended the rural traditional music with modern sound and Izivunguvungu was created. izivunguvungu is a song about striving to overcome the storms and hardships of life, about the promise of the return home" — Urban Village _______________________________ PASS NØ FØRMAT!

Songhoy Blues - Worry (Official Music Video)

Acclaimed Malian rock band Songhoy Blues newest song “Worry”. The celebrated group felt a deep need to share the inspiring song of optimism, hope, strength and vigilance, during these troubled and uncertain times. “Worry” marks the first time Songhoy Blues has recorded an original song in English, so significance of their universal message could be spread far and wide. “The harshness of life still weighs on our societies and sinks many young people into a dead end,” says the band in a unified statement. “’Worry’ is a positive energy that Songhoy Blues want to be a ray of hope for humanity. ‘Worry’ is about not stopping fighting because at the very end you will find the light.” Filmed in the capital of Bamako, by 'Running Boy' - Levieux Touré Lyrics: [CHORUS] Don’t worry You’re gonna be happy Keep working today That smile will come one day Don’t worry You’re gonna be happy Keep fighting today That smile will come one day [VERSE] Nothing’s come for free When you get it free – you will lose it freely So you better know Work hard is the best way Nothing’s come for free When you get it free – you will lose it freely So you better know Work hard is the best way Let your hope come from fight And go through your darkness You’ll find your light -CHORUS- Keep it Keep your self control Keep it Keep your eyes open Keep it Keep your self control I said Keep it Keep your eyes open This got a lesson You better hear it This got a lesson You have to listen! That smile will come [one day] That smile will come [one day] There is a long way to go There is a long journey There is a long way to go There is a long journey This life is Ups and Downs There is a long journey There is a long journey [Keep fighting today] #africanmusic #africanrock

Afro Bolero ft. Angelique Kidjo & Mo Laudi - Philippe Cohen Solal

Directed by HUMAN (Instagram @_____H_U_M_A_N_____ ) - DOP & Editing: Workout brothers - Dancers: Brice Ntamag / Dedson Killah / Cam Lacroix - Streetart by Espion : Les Mains de la paix - Model: Aurélie Giboire - Assistant: Arthur Balatier Afro Bolero : In the beginning was the rhythm. I must admit that initially, I had no intention of being inspired by Ravel's Bolero more than by its rhythmic figure, these famous two measures of ostinatos repeated 169 times on snare drum. As often, I like to confront a secular rhythm with electronic music 2.0 in order to blur the dance floors. When Mo Laudi, a Paris-based South African DJ, joined me in the studio, he delivered a great rap full of positive energy and geopolitical rhymes, from Patrice Lumumba to Biko and from Congo to São Paolo. Then Queen Angelique Kidjo, like a divine diva, fervently sang her hymn "Lonlon" in the Mina language, where the Afro literally meets the Bolero. We will not forget the fine team that allowed me to cook up this sacred cocktail: Flamme Kapaya, outstanding Congolese guitarist, the Parisian DJ-beatmaker Lazy Flow and the late Hilaire Penda, Cameroonian bass player and an active member of the Parisian african musical scene, who unfortunately left us since. Benin, South Africa, Congo and Cameroon meet in Paname, the capital of World Sounds, but the musical adventure did not stop there. The remixes take us straight to London with Poté, to Berlin with Daniel Haaksman and to Johannesburg with the super-group Batuk formed by the godfather of the African electro Spoek Mathambo, the kwaito maestro Aero Manyelo, and the Mozambican singer Manteiga. At a time when travel is prohibited or not recommended, let's be grateful, for music does not need certificates or passports and knows no borders.

BaBa ZuLa, Mehmet Levent Akman ve Osman Murat Ertel tarafından 1996 yılında kurulmuştur. Ümit Adakale ve Periklis Tsoukalas ile birlikte yoluna devam etmektedir. Their shamanic ritual like performances are a mixture of art disciplines; often featuring belly dancers, elaborate costumes, poetry, theatre and live drawing, delivering audiences a tantalizing audio-visual feast. #Babazula share their legacy with us through their music, music born in Istanbul. BaBa ZuLa features founding members Levent Akman (spoons, percussions, machines, toys), Murat Ertel (saz and other stringed instruments, vocals, oscillators, theremin), Ümit Adakale on darbuka and percussion as well as Periklis Tsoukalas on electric oud. BaBa ZuLa’s music is oriental Istanbul rock’n roll that rolls in a futuristic way and is inspired by the late 60’s. #Turkish ---------------------------------------------------
