In their villages at night, the locals gathered under the glow of the moon and in the true communal spirit they celebrated with one another, mourned with one another or simply just spent time together.</span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB">The indigenous developed their own ways of sharing their joys and sorrows; they drummed and danced and sang together. But the arrival of the colonialists marked the beginning of one of the most shameful acts of oppression and suppression the world has ever seen. Shiploads of men, women and children from different parts of Africa were taken off into the New World and into forced labour. Not only were they made to work on huge plantations, but every form of attachment to their homeland was brutally stripped from them; they lost their families and their freedom.</span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB">One thing that could not be taken from them was their heritage. In the fields, under the blazing sun, they gained inspiration from religious stories told to them from the Bible. Out there, they could identify with many of the characters from stories they had heard. To give them strength and keep them going, they sang whilst working; one person would sing out a verse and the rest would respond in chorus. They sang songs of redemption and freedom in hope that one day they would be delivered into the Promised Land.<span class="msoIns"><ins cite="mailto:yaw" datetime="2012-02-21T05:30"></ins></span></span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB">Church and religion became their shelter and they soon began to fuse songs they learnt in slavery with their own native styles; African traditions such as harmony and rhythmic drumming. And such, the roots of one of the most popular forms of music took hold; <a href="">Spirituals</a> or Gospel Music, as it is known today. <span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span></span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB"><span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span>Nelson Mandela couldn’t have captured the spirit behind this kind of music any better when he said, “The curious beauty about African music is that it uplifts even as it tells a sad tale. You may be poor, you may have a ramshackle house, you may have lost your job, but that song gives you hope. African music is often about the aspirations of the African people...”</span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB"><a href="http://www.museke.com/taxonomy/term/82">Gospel music</a> has moved on in leaps and bounds, but one distinct legacy of the African tradition remains imprinted on Gospel. <span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span>This is the <a href="">call and response</a> fashion most works of gospel conform to. Mahalia Jackson, who is regarded as the first queen of <a href="http://www.museke.com/taxonomy/term/82">gospel music</a> has been among those who have cited their gospel music origin, back at their churches as having had a significant influence on them. Africa is a continent which has embraced the Gospel music culture; these are very religious people, and there are many examples, of successful African Gospel musicians and groups, but one group has distinguished itself and remains a shining star worthy of emulation. This is the group which has taken Gospel, an origination of Africans, and turned it into a marvelous art form with their energetic performances across the globe - <a href="">Soweto Gospel Choir.</a> </span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB">Formed in November 2002, the <a href="http://www.museke.com/SowetoGospelChoir">Soweto Gospel Choir</a> has gone on to become one of the most recognizable voices on the international Gospel scene; earning numerous accolades including <a href="">Grammy</a> and <a href="">Emmy</a> awards and an Oscar nomination. <span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span><span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span><span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span></span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB"><span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span>From its humble beginnings, Gospel music has blazed a path unimaginable before, and it is refreshing to note as Africans, that one of the world’s most popular genres of music began its journey from these beaches, left in chains, and after a brief sojourn in the New World returned to its shores triumphant. <span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></span></div> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"> <span lang="EN-GB" style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA; mso-fareast-font-family: Calibri; mso-fareast-language: EN-US;"></span></div> africa africa christian music gospel music soweto gospel choir spiritual May 4, 2012, 4:55 p.m. afroziky 9540 at http://fienipalyrics.appspot.com:80 NEW MUSIC: Karisma - Jebe Koro ft Random http://fienipalyrics.appspot.com:80/node/9539?s=l <Img src = "http://musichief.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/www.musichief.com_-300x225.jpg"> Jebe Koro is a hot new tune from upcoming Nigerian act, Karisma on which he features budding rapper, Random.

Tubaba mustered up different genres such as Reggae, RnB, Hip-hop, electro-pop, Naija afropop and surprisingly, some elements of Soukous for the 15 tracks album. Not so surprising that the song <i>Higher</i>, opener of the piece, is a reggae composition, however adding Pakistani Huma Lara bollywood singing was an excellent and stunning addition to the spiritual healing song. Tuface also included a song special enough to replace <i>African Queen</i> and become the new love anthem for African Women. <i>Rainbow</i> is deep, soulful and the lyrics are just beautiful. Such album also has to have some good afro-pop tunes for many Naija party nights to come. It is the case with songs like <i>Keep on pushing, Ihe Neme </i>and<i> Omo No Dulling</i> feat Dammy Krane and Rocksteady which should get derrieres banging as suggested by the lyrics. Tuface also added traces of Congolese pop music in some records. You can feel the Soukous like guitar riff in the intro and follow with an electronic clown of B\Ndombolo in <i>Steady Steady</i>. The same Congolese vibe is better felt in<i> Bad Man Bad Girl</i>, a duo with Ghanaian songstress Becca. This new album will surely satisfy those who have been enjoying Tuface’s music since the beginning. <b>Away &amp; Beyond</b> is deep, fresh and has enough creativity to put you in awe.
