Sgiathan, Freedom and Mandela 

When I first conceptualized "Freedom" *
it was a mixture of so many things
In part it was about the Blues
and slavery and oppression

Growing up in South Africa
during the 60s
you can imagine
the intensity
as I wrote
it.

FREEDOM



Among the images I considered
to accompany this rough recording
by Sgiathan**
I found this poster

@ The Mississippi Department of Archives and History


I was reminded of my earlier posts: Waking Up In Africa (Day 1, Day 2)
and remembered that I'd wanted to bring forward
a book I've been reading entitled:
Good Morning, Mr Mandela : A Memoir
by
Zelda la Grange

WAKING UP IN AFRICA
Day 3



Footnotes
***(*)***
*Freedom first appeared as a demo, on an incomplete album Devil's Island in 2005 and subsequently in 2007 on another incomplete album Peace Dove (USA)

**Sgaithan is Blue Django (voc, guitar & harmonica) ;  Bill Baird (acoustic bass) and Peter Lugg (electric guitar) :
