This Is Dee

"Out of the huts of history's shame, I rise. Up from a past that's rooted in pain, I rise. I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide. Welling and swelling, I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear. I rise. Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear. I rise. Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave. I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise. I rise. I rise.

The Man I Love by Rokia Traoré 

Rokia Traoré - Tchamantché

Rokia Traoré is a singer/songwriter/guitarist /dancer from Mali. I don’t know why I haven’t heard of her until today. I love her music and the fact that she plays the guitar makes her even more fascinating!

Falling in Love with her music!
