Libana : Night Passage : 00  1 CD

Libana : Night Passage

This recording is the third in a trilogy which began with "A Circle is Cast" and "Fire Within." For the selections music was sought which reflects the cyclical nature of existence and which would soothingly resonate with the totality of existence. Themes of life, death, renewal and the connection which is the underlying theme of existence, love, are presented here in sixteen songs from the far and near corners of the world. The common thread which ties all these together is the peaceful effect of the songs all of which seem to have a circular quality. Libana has been singing these songs in moments of passage and times of transition for people from coast to coast, sharing grace, peace, and beauty in those moments of significance in other's lives. All the while this sharing is their own exploration into the divine mysteries within which our existence is rooted. So come and share with them the words of Rumi set to music, along side of which you'll find music from South Africa (Xhosa), Jewish traditions, American Shakers, Sweden, Sicily, West Africa (Yoruba), and a bevy of individuals who are inspired to craft music of peace. Some of the songs have a touch of instrumentation to enhance the feel sought by the musicians. The theme for the recording which Susan Robbins chose to grace the notes comes from Rumi. "...Whatever circles comes from the center."

Songlist: Whatever Circles Comes from the Center, Dark of the Moon, Oh Mama Bakudala, Summer Solstice, I Have A Million Nightingales, Bim Bam, Learned of Angel, V'asu Li Mikdash, The Breeze at Dawn, We All Come from the Goddess, Yemaya, Vem Kan Segla, Er a la vo, Night Goes Back, Ise Oluwa, Deep Peace

Sweet Honey In The Rock : All For Freedom : 00  1 CD : 42505

Sweet Honey In The Rock : All For Freedom

Bernice Johnson Reagon, the founder of Sweet Honey, is a scholar of African-American children's lore from the South, including songs, dances, games and stories. Two other members, Aisha Kahlil and Nitanju Bolade Casel, together conduct workshops and performances for youngsters. It's no surprise that these talanted singers produced this recording specifically for children. The songs include a one from the Georgia Sea Island Singers, one written by Leadbelly, a Yoruba song from Nigeria, traditional African-American songs and originals by the group. Each song is introduced with enough information to give a child an idea of what it's about. This is a grand way to introduce young people to other cultures. As in all of Sweet Honey's music, freedom for you, me and everyone is the most obvious message carried by song straight to the heart. The final track is a musically accompanied fantasy story, "Alunde And The Story Of Ono" in which the song "Alunde"(which means 'happy new day') is the most prized possession of the people of Ono. Thank you, Sweet Honey In The Rock!

Songlist: So Glad I'm Here, Cumbayah, Down in the Valley Two by Two, The Little Shekere, The Little Red Caboose, All For Freedom, Juba, Everybody Ought to Know, Calypso Freedom, Amen, Ise Oluwa, Meeting at the Building, Johanna and Rhody, Make New Friends, Horse and Buggy, Silvie, Alunde and the Story of Ono
