I like what I've seen on some folks blogs, you know, a weekly, recurring "event" like "Lurker Thursday" over at Diary of an Anxious Black Woman and "Monday's Meal" over at My Little Slice of Pie or "Wordless Wednesday" at various blogs I've run into.
Well, through the miracle of YouTube, I've been able to find some fantastic music. I've grown to enjoy many different kinds of music and I want to share with anyone who might stumble upon my blog. I'm going to start out with Igbo music because I think that has been the greatest thing I've found on YouTube. I'm not sure what day this "musical event" will occur but it seems that since I finally got around to it on Friday, I'll stick with that. Now to think of a clever name.
So here it is, the first installment of [insert clever name here]: "Agam Adi Ndu" by Paul Nwokocha
I love this song. Calming. Peaceful. And so powerful. It basically says that "human beings predict or say all these negative things about me and what will become of me but it is only what God says that is true--what God says I will be, is what I will be."
I'm becoming more and more motivated to reconnect my children to my family back home in Nigeria. It's not in the budget or in any way convenient but . . . songs like this make me feel nostalgic and remind me how important it is to go back to the root.
