All About Jazz
All about jazz is like all about life. When heaven meets earth in harmonie, changing our crazy world into a world of beauty, peace and freedom with a foundation based on love for all. Kojato, ananasha
Shigida is a vision, seeing the whole wild world in the street, on the plattforms on the undergroundstations, on the schoolgrounds, in the offices, just everywhere you can think of. Hey, what a moment, feeling your body, everyone dancing, mooving, spending energy, soulful joy driven by the beat of Shigida.
The Sounds of my soul sometimes, it‘s just a language of my heart - words, flying in the air to be spoken - and whoever hears it, feels it or not. Nevertheless Oudo Makasan is a person, who seeks all live long some love, light and strenght. It´s a happy song.
Good Morning Afrika
Being a son of this great country - AFRICA and knowing that we have been living with the light, the sunshine, as little children learning to understand the beauty and clearness of this light. Now in awakening, realising that this light burns constantly in us with the message, that we should keep it on. Don´t give it up that good. Everything happens like it should. We just do it - we follow the light. Obladi, Oblada, life goes on my brother, my sister. I say good morning to Africa.
Funky - i believe - is a kind of musical terminology. When something smells, whether a good or bad smell, a smell you can feel, situations where you smell the beat, that music - the smell of the sounds - the smell of the sweat of the dancing bodies - wow - a crazy vibration, THAT smells funky. Now YOU get funky ... Lot´s of fun with Funky Man!!
Everywhere You Go Now, Kuti
Fela, nigerian african brother, friend and musician. Fela Anikolapo Kuti, a great african musician - priest Fela, a musical spirit and his spirit will always be around. He sang about justice, freedom of africa and all the world, freedom for all human being, from all what we created, that jails us today. He spoke and sang about the real truth, may his soul rest in peace, TARADOS and AN- Anasha and enjoy the music, rewind your thoughts and film and try to be Fela.
you know, there are a lot of things you want to change, and lots of things you want do get rid of. So much materials that we collect, objects and thoughts, so much that we feel like in a cage without doors, without exits, everything is tight. we all know, the more we try to forget the past, that brings us down in spirit, we dream of let them loose, we dream of a new beginning. With this knowledge you save your soul and life in freedom and in peace with all. Let loose, save your soul. AN-Anasha
Like A Gypsy
We all are gypsies. From the time of birth through our journey in life till we go back home. Everybody looks for space to live, to be free, to be happy, like the gypsymusic always is. Using the tools and talents that we brought with us to this world to make a living in joy and happiness, fighting all battles with the hope to stay in love.
Sex is not a tabu for me. Making love is a healing process. You feel the rhythm of life, you feel the fire, you floate and feel like swimming in the ocean with your back and watching the clouds go by and dig it. Enjoy it and keep the whole body vibrating. It´s just nice to feel sexy. I wish everbody can live this.
That Kind Of Feeling
... is like the fire in your body, you are happy it`s like a before-joy, getting ready to enter the tempel of love and than you make love. you become a light in the universe, you become an energy that gives all things life again. One of the best gifts from nature to ALL of us. Romancing is not a tradition, it‘s a natural way of life. Please make love, create some space for this act, seek peace. An-anasha.
