Music

 

 

Along the way we met some truly gifted musicians, we encountered the Baha’i Youth on the beach singing:

Fear not abasement, be not sad if poverty overtake thee, for Glory shall one day rest on thee… These fruitless strifes and wars will pass a away and the most great peace shall come, so shall it be”

Dominique Sylvester singing about inner peace:

When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace, a thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love!”

Hailey Fudu sings:

Oh son of Being, thy heart is my home. Sanctify it for my descent. Thy spirit my place of revelation, cleanse it for my manifestation… thy heart is my home.”

Then an instrumental piece by Lukasz Staszak in the Drakensburg mountains, followed by the lovely Dani Nieuwoudt who advises us to:

Stop trying, stop meaning to try, just be… oooh so many things that you could do, it’s true, don’t you realise how beautiful you are just being you!”

Then an unforgettable concert, Matthew Mole singing:

Take away this fear and I’ll turn it into something I can use, and if I’m clear then you’re never gonna bring me down again, never gonna bring me down again. And if you would let me try a little harder then I’ll show you, we were made to play a part so much bigger than you thought, until the end.”

 

 

Blastoff
Everything is getting better and better, better and better
Better and better and better
Lets just take a little time to heal
Take a little time, take a little time
Take a little time”

 

 

I’m knocking on your door, I’m not afraid anymore,
cos i’m hoping that i’m already, your everything…”

Fountain of Light

 

The first time i ever met Dominique was a few years back, one day, a very busy day, i had my monthly treasury report due and also a recording session at a creche with Hailey and a bunch of kiddies, and my good friend Xola asked if i can fetch someone at the airport, and its very hard to refuse him, so to the airport we went. So we picked this tall and friendly youngster up from the airport  and went directly to the recording session at the creche cos i was running late. I quickly setup and started recording the kids singing their songs, and Dominique naturally got involved and helped out with the recording. I had no idea at that point that he was a super talented singer songwriter, but later that week i saw him walking around, always with the guitar in hand… and when i heard his catchy, bouncy, inspiring songs I immediately got him into studio and, what can i say, it was the beginning of a beautiful partnership!

I have a great deal of respect for this young man, so humble, sincere and charismatic, his voice has the power to uplift and move, he sings with such passion and heart. But besides the music – all the amazing service he offers to his community at such a young age, just astonishes me. If i think back to what i was doing at his age, i am soo, i don’t know, ashamed. My mentality was nowhere near this illumined brightness of spirit. So i thought what better way to launch the New Era than with a short glimpse, insight into his life and music and family. We spent an evening and night and morning with the Sylvester family and they were so welcoming and friendly – we had so much fun and recorded new songs and did the interviews and stuff, it was really memorable times, we will always cherish.

Keep an eye or an ear on this young man, he is destined for great things! 🙂

Peace
