My mission to continue an everlasting journey for my right brain marketing manuscript seemed to be turning into a never-ending mission with a series of right brain marketing sequels in continuous motion……..

 

 

 

 

 

 

I came into contact with Lalah Raindimby ,  a native of Madagascar, she hails from the southeastern portion of the Island country in an area called Fianarantsoa.

She is from the ethnic Betsileo group in that country.

Betsileo are widely known for their special artistic creativity with own traditional dialect called Horija Betsileo.

 

Lalah is the second generation musician and vocalist being the daughter of region’s Famous legendary artist Known as Raindimby.

 

 

Raindimby is credited with making this unique form of music widely known throughout the country and beyond the borders of Madagascar.

LALAH,tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

My true passion is my music; for me, music is a means of expression of life as a human being. Performing the folk and cultural music of my homeland allows me to keep my heritage close to me and to build upon the legacy of my dad and other noted performers of his generation. The music gives me motivation and strength in life.

How did you find your passion and how old were you?

At a very young age, I think I was six years old when I observed my dad and other family members rehearsing for a performance in the house.  

I began to sing. By the time I was a teenager my dad invited me on stage to perform with him.  I joined him on many occasions and found that performing was enjoyable and the audience response was encouraging.

From that time until the present music has been a critical part of my life. My first love and my passion.

What about your passion appeals to you the most? 

I find that when I am engaged with the music I become spiritually transformed and purely focused on my music and forget about the troubles of the world.

What drove you to make money from your passions?

As a teenager performing with my father and realising that my father was singing as professional and making money from his performance that he shared with me and I realise in addition being spiritually gratifying I could make money as a professional singer.

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

As a teenager performing with my Dad

 What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

The memory of my late father and reflecting on the sacrifice that he made to expose the musical tradition Horija Betsileo of our people to the entire country and beyond.

 What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

I have in effect become an Ambassador to keep that musical and cultural tradition alive and pass it on to the next generation.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

I must continue to strive in those ideas which are dear to me and I cannot allow them to stop me from perusing my goals and dreams,

 What advice do you give to aspiring creative is who look up to you?

Well, you are going to face lots of challenges but don’t give up on your dreams and your passion, just believe in yourself and work hard to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

Welcome to the Light of Africa

Tanzania Tanzania……

The Juu Afrikan festival in Morogoro

The Light of Africa ‘Tu Nokwe’ in Morogoro Tanzania -JUU Afrikan Festival

Welcome. #ExploremotherlandAfrica

 

The Light Of Africa – Ready to Shine at the JUU Afrikan Festival,Tanzania2017

Igniting “Khanyisa”, the light of Africa into Tanzania in 2015, Tu Nokwe hailed sparkling testimony that light of Africa cannot die out.

The ‘Light of Africa’ , Tu Nokwe, blessed the heart of motherland Africa, Tanzania on various special occasions in 2015.

A blissful melody of liberating tunes left heart beats echoing with rhythm and souls pulsating with sounds of Africa at the renowned Bagamoyo Festival.

Many fundraising projects were initiated for further development. One of them was AMAP (“The Africa Modern Arts Project”). Based in the historical town of Bagamoyo, AMAP serves as a community-based learning centre with a mission to harbour and guide local talent, helping artists to polish skill and flourish as professionals.

Joyful vocals brightening the gloom with a soulful blend of jazz and funk sprouted with a new age twist at performances and workshops at Dhow Countries Music Academy in Zanzibar.

According to DCMA director Mitchel Strumpf, Ms. Nokwe visited Zanzibar during the time of the Zanzibar Film Festival and participated in activities of the Festival. She conducted a workshop for the Certificate and Diploma students at the Dhow Countries Music Academy and performed as a special guest during a concert by the DCMA's Taarab-Kidumbak Ensemble. That visit was a trail-blazer for future visits, an opening of the door to see the interests of people for thinking about music and music-making from the standpoint of music being healthy for broadening the soul of a person, including the sharing of musical sounds like sharing food at a dinner.

“Her voice is magnificent and the music projects she and her family have been doing in South Africa hopefully will associate with the activities of DCMA and other schools of music traditions from African cultures in other parts of Africa to form an Association of Schools of Traditional African Music. This idea was discussed in detail while she was at DCMA. While in Zanzibar previously, Ms Nokwe also gave a master class in singing and African song styles.

The design of her programme was to boost self-esteem and inspiration with creative interaction, music and storytelling with self-management and life skills workshops, jam sessions and talent showcases. An opportunity for Africa to share all they excel in.

 "Africa needs ongoing inspiration and motivation to maintain happy societies" Tu Nokwe

calling to Tanzania has returned as crowds yearn for her return.

Intricate harmonies and blissful guitar rhythms ensemble a rise into the realm of open avenues of possibilities, inspiration and empowerment.

Guest of honour Tu Nokwe will be accompanied by none other than the legendary Dorothy Masuka with a group of five children.

Dorothy rose to fame in the revolutionary era of the 1950’s and aspires to share her wisdom with the upcoming generation to explore the magnificent continent they are from.

Dorothy Masuka

Her voice evoked global applause. Her songs catapulted many South African artists to fame, Her music spoke of the times. She’s an international icon, role model, artist, mother, grandmother, family caregiver, composer, singer, musician, entertainer.

 

The history of the contribution of black women musicians would be incomplete without the story of Dorothy Masuka whose musical compositions still inspire young and old musicians today.
