Louder than war

With all of the madness going on around the world, it’s easy to say we’re f’ed and just call it a day. But let’s get serious for a moment…when do we talk about all the good? We know it’s there, but we forget about it. Let’s make our kindness louder than war, one act of goodness upon another. Let’s listen to music and celebrate beauty in diversity. (drops mic and gets off soapbox)

In the spirit of sharing beauty in diversity, here’s my new favorite: Mauritanian (North African) singer and instrumentalist, Noura Mint Seymali, who comes from a prominent family of keepers of traditional musical and story. Her new album, Tzenni, out now on Glitterhouse Records, is absolutely gorgeous. Here’s a preview:
