Piano, repique, chico…
The sizes of the three drums brought such color
When one was lost in cultural amnesia
Credit slowly became due long after Barcelona’s crown was rejected
The connection to the lost was retrieved
By hand and by clave
The memories flooded and the shame evaporated
After centuries of propaganda
Robust sounds burst by trios or infantries or cuerdas
It’s finally here!
My first full-length album “Dear Innovare…The Souls Of Ignored Pioneers Shall Be Ignored” finally drops. It’s only $7 for 41 songs. If you pre-ordered it, then you should get the whole album now.
If you didn’t buy it, then please support me whenever you can. Regardless if you do or not, you can stream the FULL ALBUM on my Bandcamp page or this album player on this post. This thing was a fun experimental genre roulette while making songs involving various inventions, artwork, medical breakthroughs, music, film, architecture, and even anime. This is a unified theme of creators who were overlooked for their creations and/or had their works stolen.
Feel free to check out this album!
Identities were excavated
Bringing a new sense of purpose
To those who were born lost
The originators smile on
As these roots were now found
I know I’ve been posting irregularly, but I want to bring light on this cause which I find to be quite fascinating.
This crowdfunding campaign involves independent media organization Advise Show Media as they try to cover the Ashenda Festival in Mekelle, Ethiopia. Here’s a video of what said festival is about…
I think this is so fantastic on several levels. It’s awesome showing all the different cultures with how they celebrate. For those of you that know about me here or my other blogs, you should know that I can’t stand the stereotypes of Africa being poor, crime-ridden, diseased, and having no culture. This is a way to break through those lies that the mainstream media perpetuates on Africa. The Ashenda Festival crowdfunding is a great cause for Advise Show to cover this year’s festival, document the event, and to show various aspects of Ethiopia that they never show anyone.
I support this cause, and I hope you give it a little glimpse. Thank you.
P. S. Major thumbs up for Ethiopia and Eritrea finally reaching peace with each other after decades of fighting. Seeing both countries’ leaders hugging each other just hit me in the feels.
