As youth growing up experiencing multiple adventures we shift from Helena, Arkansas to other communities. Music was the guide, no Green Book necessary. With drums surging through the ride, there is understanding of its origins, which are from traditions of Africa. The essence transported with the Middle Passage. Language of history, are the words used by the artists on this compilation. Many excursions have transpired by the featured artists. We the escaped souls making migrations to Calumet City, Compton, Detroit, the Bronx by way of Cameroon, Ibadan, Nigeria transporting to Little Rock, Philadelphia, and Memphis. Our music conjures rhythms ranging from Skip James, Cheick Seck, and Ornette Coleman. Traveling passing mounds to row houses but arriving at empty lots. The album covers visual imagery from a lot of emptiness but there is still soul that provides food, shelter and clothing; wrapped with love and support and glimpses of a brighter future. #culturepower45 #hiphop #drumsfoodclothingshelter DRUMS_PROMO_32
