Description

Metaphor on CD

Mo Ambesa, 'Children of the Lion' in the Amharic tongue of Ethiopia, has been spreading her roots from Vermont to Brooklyn, Santa Cruz to New Orleans, India to Senegal, Palestine to Israel... Our new Record, 'Metaphor', is our first attempt to preserve all we've learned. The rhythm section was recorded together in honor of the live show. Together they combine grooves from roots Reggae, the streets of New Orleans, and Brooklyn underground Hiphop. The horns envoke styles from John Coltrane and Charles Mingus to Fela Kuti and the Skatellites. Within the lyrics are metaphors from Rumi's Mathnawi, David Melech's Tehellim/Psalms, and Mo originals. The symbolism of Nature has been given to us as metaphors for our bearing in life. The transformative Power in this poetry is a gift from the Infinite.
