“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein
Listeners will find a mellow, upbeat mood here. Melodies with flavors of Folk, Blues, Jazz, Africa and other cultures coalesce, underlined by compelling rhythms.
English and Swahili lyrics in this music by Kris & Lark (formerly Kuimba) transmit the feeling that life is good.
The clear, earthy quality of Lark’s lead voice and Kris’ exuberant tenor blend in an unusually lovely way. Add to this, guitar, trombone, African harp and drum, and spicy percussion.
Kris & Lark communicate the significance of bio and cultural diversity through a colorful and informative, story-telling style of presentation. This unique music with its bold sensual rhythms, lyrics, rap, and trombone solos is feel-good stuff. The audience is at times invited to participate, singing and clapping.
