I woke up this morning trying to google, youtube search and shazam stalk this song, but it took OkayAfrica to jog my memory. Alas, South Africa’s Black Motion‘s hit Imali (money in Zulu) will give you the jolt you need to kick start your week with positive, upbeat vibes.

And since it’s a Monday Morning, this feels appropriate…

Chicago born, Gil Scott Heron been woke since woke was a thing… He’s probably turning over in his grave right now, but… every once in a while we need to be reminded of how far we’ve come and how far we haven’t… Thank you, sir.

And since it’s a Monday Morning, this feels appropriate… let’s call on Lady Day and make the most of the day we have in front of us!

South Africa rising has to get your day off to a wonderful start, right?

This song hails from Lloyd Kappas, a new artist from my adopted country of Mozambique. I love a good love story (“casamento” means wedding in Portuguese) and a solid rags to riches story (I think you all are smart enough to know that he won the lottery) – he delivers both. Enjoy all these positive vibes and have a great day ahead!

So, this has to be one of my all time favorite #housemusic instrumentals from South Africa. Thanks to Prince Kaybee and his expert deephouse music you should have no problem having a great day today. Go forth and be great!

So, let’s all enjoy the sounds of Boubacar Traore from Mali. I’ve been listening to Mr. Traore’s music since 2007 and it never fails to move something in my soul. My sincerest sympathies, well wishes and hopes go to Mali, which has also been ravaged by terrorism as of late… and I’m a sucker for blues music and a good harmonica riff.

And on with your day, mindfully and peacefully…go.

The song hails from the amazing Malian artist, Salif Keita. Despite his albinism considered a sign of bad luck or otherwise a sign of good luck (which means bad luck for actual albinos) , he rose to fame locally and then internationally after moving to Paris in the 80s. Welcome to West Africa on this happy Monday morning… Enjoy!
