Long Walk To Freedom
Please forgive us for posting an item without even an invented Barbados connection, but Shona and I saw Ladysmith Black Mambazo a few years ago when we were visiting some relatives in New York City – and we wish we could be there this year for their upcoming March concert. (music samples here)
How is it that music can transcend thought and intellect so easily?
I am not African. I am not British. I AM BAJAN…
… but the last time I listened to Ladysmith Black Mambazo live, tears fell for a homeland I have never known.
