Hello, today the British anxiety for the the new royal baby was deflated, as Prince Pi (22/7) was born in a natural way at 4.24 pm, so with all the birthing stress most babies go through, those demented Royal subjects can go back to their crib now.

We still find ourselves in an environment that gave rise to the worlds monotheistic religions be it on the Arabian peninsula, here we stay in the Saharan/Sahel band stretching from the West-Atlantic coast to the highlands of Ethiopia in the east of the continent, a vast area where fresh water tends to come at a premium , where the sun is burning down during daytime and nighttime can be cold, where the moon is the sole light source apart from the warming campfires. Is it any surprise then that singing and making music together lifted the spirits of those gathering in these desolate landscapes.  For the coming weeks your place at the campfire is available  

The spiritual ambiance, the purity and innocence and soulfulness of this music is something that speaks volume about peace and, ultimately, the love of music and the joy in its creation. The artistry you'll find on this collection is masterful, driving, rudimetairy and refreshing. The music presented creates a yearning to return to it, again and again. It taps into the fundamental rhythm of the human spirit one needn't understand the languages, but you'll understand the music. It speaks across cultural boundaries, time and genres  .....N'joy
