Happy Black History Month 2021
My African Ancestors left songs, which I sang as a child and continue to. My dear friend here reminded me of this childhood song we learnt in Guyana. As we recline in quarantine, we are reassured by these songs. They keep us rooted. I have many collections of African folk songs throughout the Caribbean. I treasure this old album - A 1982 recordings, from the Guyana United Apostolic Mystical Council and St. Matthews Apostolic Mission, which represents the African communities of Guyana. Religious rituals, marriage ceremonies, and ancestor worship are conveyed in traditional song, dance and drumming.
