Sexion D’assaut – Africain

Posted: May 2, 2012 in Music, Videos

For this month’s musical selection, I couldn’t get myself to pick just one song. I know I know but the decision was a tough one, trust me. 

The first selection is a song that was sent to me on Facebook by a friend, it was love at first hear, yeah you heard me right. The lyrics did it for me and the instrumental is just so groovy. Unfortunately my english speaking audience might feel a little out of the loop with this one, but I encourage you to look for a translation on google or something.  

Nothing else needs to be said, ENJOY!! Moi j’trop kiffe! 

The second musical selection for this month is Emeli Sandé’s Read all about it part III. I’ve just recently discovered Sandé and she is fast becoming one of my favorite English artist. I dunno, something about her musical style and may be hairstyle that I can’t help but find  intriguing. Her debut album titled  “Our Version Of Events” was realeased early last month and should be made available in the States this month if i’m not mistaken.

I selected Read All About It because of the perfect union that it forms with the subject matter dealt with in this blog. ENJoy and I encourage you to check out some of her materials 😉

Papa Wemba – Congo moko

For this month’s musical selection, I acted on impulse and waited till the last minute to pick a song. Actually what happened is that I was having a hard time making up my mind. Yesterday, I was leaning toward “Africa Must Wake Up” by D. Marley and Nas, but this afternoon while strolling down my Facebook newsfeed page I came across a video posted by a friend.  Although I’d like to think of myself as a true fan of Papa Wemba, I have never heard of this song. It has instantly become one of my favorites from him.

The reason why I chose this particular number over the Distance Relative song, isn’t because Wemba’s song is lyrically better, I picked the song because it carries with it a homely sentiment that just makes you stop and backtrack on the olden days and time travel to a future full of possibilities. 

ENJOY …
