~ Baha'u'llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas
this particular song, 'Motherland-Africa, was the most significant song for me as a young Baha'i woman longing to make this world a better place. it spoke to my heart. it made my soul cry freedom when i was unable to feel like i was making a difference. i could dance to this song and feel like my soul was uplifted to that plane of oneness with all people, as i those words were my words and that yearning for freedom was my prayerful call for that freedom..
i have been looking for this song for years. i didn't know the name of it or the group. my online searches proved futile until now when i found it on YouTube trying different search words. long gone are my days of dancing at the clubs but music lives within me just as it did more than 20 years ago. i am now carrying this song in my heart like i do many other songs that continue to root my soul within the pure soil of love as it strives toward spiritual transformation while living in Africa.
