MenoSunday; LIfe Lived Easy

I had a memory - prompted by seeing a kaftan on a singer in a sound clip a couple of weeks back. My kaftans are long ago worn out. They were great to wear though. Indian 'suits' - the salwaar kameez ('harem' pants and long blouse) with dupatta (shawl) - fill that gap now... I digress on the matter of dress.

The point was I started remembering Sunny Ade. Back in Nigeria days, he was the absolute king-pin of popular West African 'pop'. I bought two of his records whilst we were there - and they only finally left me (along with a few other treasured vinyls) when I divested myself of pretty much everything prior to India move.There was another Nigerian connection, but will bring that to you next week. When I put the search in for Ade's music, I was delighted to find recent footage, from a concert in Seattle!!! The first one here translates as "Master of My Table" and then "Passion". Groovy Sunday everyone...


  1. I feel there's nowhere you have not been, surely in spirit if your feet have not gone.

  2. Music speaks to every soul, no matter what language is your native one. Thank you for sharing a bit of the beauty you've experienced along life's way.

  3. Every one loves music. Thanks for sharing!!


  4. That is lovely on the ears! Don't understand it but it doesn't seem to matter it is enjoyable so I guess that is the litmus for good music!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
