Dreaming

There is a quote by Brenda Shoshanna that says: "All conflict we experience in the world is a conflict within our own selves". This song is about inner conflict. An ongoing battle between one’s thoughts and emotions. As much as inner conflict is inevitable, dealing with it effectively is essential if we are to live up to our capabilities.

THE WORLD IS CRYING

Co-writers FRANCIS MBE (Cameroun) and MALOU BEAUVOIR (Haitian-American) contributed equally to the writing and production of this track, which was beautifully complemented by JOAO PARAHYBA (Brazil) unique percussions. Malou’s lyrics speak to a world troubled by sickness and inequality while calling to a new generation of Spiritual warriors to rise. Francis’s French and YEZUM (Camerounian) lyrics describe a world in conflict and implore man and the ancestors to bring peace to our hearts. Joao’s percussions speak their spiritual message in the l

2Thousand years of War

When I analyze our daily life, for ages, I just note that since the creation of this world and even the first men like ADAM and EVA, men were already fighting for multiple interests. Man gives his all to invent, to create dangerous weapons to destroy the world and keep us in perpetual CONFLICT. 2 Thousant years of war.

DAFA WARA NOOYI

« Dafa wara nooyi» means « it gotta breathe » in wolof language from my country Senegal. It paints the human being against the yellings of the planet. How can we be deaf and dumb not being aware of the crying of our planet. That we should better listen and act to repare before it is too late. I chosed three other artists from different backgrounds so they express them selves and tell by their ways how we should behave and open our eyes. Change will come from us then we can make it if we want it. And more,we gotta change orelse we all gonna die.

Pachamama

Pachamama, from Quechua Pacha (universe), and Mama (Mother Earth) is the deity of indigenous people of the central Andes, related to the Earth, the mother. Like a goddess who has the gift of purification, in addition to the power of planting love in everyone's heart, it is considered the one who sows life in the world, contributing to a safer life on the Planet. This piece intends to remove all the filters that prevent us reaching the essence of each forest, plant and make clear how we merge into one while breathing together.
