Roll and Coasters: Happy Now

R&Cs: Happy Now

I’ll admit this isn’t the strongest field I’ve had to do with but we always make it work. By all measures, Norwegian music producer Kygo has had a pretty successful year. And to cap it off with “Happy Now” and a video treatment showcases the breathtaking views of your home country should be the cherry to the cake, no? Elsewhere, we send our thoughts to legendary Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour who has had to cope with the loss of one of his closes acolytes, Habib Faye. Still, we celebrate the good music and the trail blazed for the musicians to come – such as the young Senegalese singer Djeyna from the remote Kolda region who just released a nice debut single.

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
