Si la tierra respira

The purpose of the song is to encourage women from the tribes in Africa to gain strength, break with their old beliefs based on what their role represents in their communities to transcend their own limitations, being able to access the possibility of their personal growth. This also implies working with the rest of the members of the tribe. It was recorded in Zanzibar, Mexico and New York. The lyrics are in Spanish and Swahili. It is a collaboration of musicians from Africa, France, Israel, Cuba, USA & Mexico.

Kijanisha the Planet (Regreen the Planet)
  • Creativity Award
  • Album Track

This song is a call to reconnect with nature and regreen the planet. The lyrics speak of dire environmental issues, but the music will make you want to dance. There's no need to sit around being sad about the world - grab a shovel, plant a seed and groove! The roots of the composition are Msafiri Zawose and Anna Kattoa's impassioned vocals. The song then travelled back and forth between Tanzania and Canada as more instruments were added, growing slowly and steadily like a tree.
