Just Sand

"There is a question to be asked,
Many have carried it around as have I,
For sometime, yes, sometime.
As I step and traverse this our land,
As i trek and am exposed to our master plan.
Like children we are happy
Throwing our stones upon the water,
But this to the frogs is a storm of sand.
Is it true what they say about you?
Remember that being clever gave
The monkey a long tail ...
Or was it Pinnochio and his nose ..?"

Ahh ... never mind, crank up the machines, tuende mbele!! (forward!)

This music is my special thanks to family, friends, partners in life/music
Past, present, future, I salute you.
Thank you.

Ayub Ogada

On En Mana Kuoyo meaning just sand, he sings mellifluous, almost hypnotic, and yet ultimately lackadaisical melodies concerning home, his instrument, the weather, and injustice.
