As I’m listening…
Moving to the sound
Of profound messaging
Mikel Ameens lessons in
Grime and African Spirituality
I’m a regular listener but the sound of this topic resonated with me differently
Grime and African Spirituality.
As I switch my right leg for left
skating around this bend lets switch the title for a sec…
African Spirituality and Grime
As spirit comes first I say and ‘Spirit means Breath’ and ‘your entire being is breathing’ says Mikel.
That Black Magic
The origins of all life.
And so like all things birthed… She birthed sounds of vibrations
And what I love about music is… it’s not all about sound. But also about touch, sight and feeling…
And you can regularly get your in-spirational dose
ex-ternally by connecting to Mikels podcast
Ex –ternal activities are a great help in causing inner to grow.
Like my ritual of washing the dishes every morning to clear my mind…
like my ritual of skating to move with nature!
And – as well as the rootsy, dirty, label of GRIME that encompasses both origin with muck…
Is GRIME not ritualistic?
The breath breathes on
The spirit produces music
And us Africans make Grime
With the intention to be a World Changer?
Change – that title back round!
The sound of my skates against the ground of concrete
Reminds me that our presence is not obsolete
I hear Mikel being to Hiiii to go to Hell…
And am encouraged that Heaven is my Right and my Responsibility... (repeat)
I ritualistically move to music skate to sound
Turn back around as I listen.
Birds tweeting, dog barking
And friends laughing
Over my head-phones
My quads - keeping me inline physically – engages me spiritually
As I in-tune to and ex-press out of myself…
World Changer… just by changing myself!
Mikel Ameen’s Spiritual Health podcast is one of my in-tune favourites.
And as part of my In-theatre audio sessions he was always going to be a feature, as these sessions are aimed to encourage us to review ourselves and tune into that inner voice.
So why not start with - Grime and African Spirituality!
