ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the 12th studio album by Beautiful Nubia and the Roots Renaissance Band. Ancient, traditional wisdom cloaked in contemporary robes; deep and serious messages riding upon sweet melodies and evocative rhythms. The songs cover a variety of themes:
1. EDA: Without betrayal by someone on the inside, no outside force can breach your defence. The person who invited the robber, showed him the way, is the same person who forewarned the owner.
2. TIWALANSE: It may seem unclear to some, but we know the path we are on. We are in competition with no one, just doing our own thing!
3. LADY OF THE VALLEY: Of encounters in the shadows of minarets, leather, coffee, assignations by olive groves and romantic awakenings in Marrakesh, Morocco.
4. TAABAKU: No person is ever truly, fully appreciated until after his/her passing. Alive, man is worth little; in death, he earns immortality.
5. COLOUR OF ALL DAYS: Love is the colour of all days; other colours are for occasions. The early inspiration for this song is “I Thank You, God”, a poem by the great Ivorian writer and statesman Bernard Dadie.
6. AKEEGBE NLA: Ode to a friendly palm-wine devotee who, with little regard for material wealth or personal adornment, delights in spending his earnings on entertaining folks from all walks of life at the community bar.
7. BOBBI’S WAY: Yes, Bobbi may be an urban youth, but she won’t follow the prevailing social trends sheepishly. She’s the “new African” - a perfect amalgam of traditional wisdom and modern knowledge.
8. HOMECOMING: Ruminations of a prodigal, on wasted time and a chance at rebirth. ”I’m going back again to where I took my roots from/Back to my mummy’s breast where it all began…”
9. B’O SE ND’AGBA: A father’s plea to his children to tread the path of truth, love, selflessness and courage as they grow.
10. OLADUNNI: We mustn’t be envious of the valiant; those who work hard deserve to enjoy their success.
11. PROMISED CHILD: The old warrior casts off her worn battle shield and fires up her young charge. “Pick it up son, souse me up boy/Heart of gold, my light is fading and this is your turn”.
12. ORIN ADETUTU: Dear Adetutu, if there is no crack in the wall, the lizard cannot pass through. Pay no heed to the distraction of liars and slanderers; please love me over again.
13. REVERIE: The rhythm of love has many shades, like the African sky/It could be black, could be white, could be brown or blue or red/This is the stuff happy dreams are made of…
