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!

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!

Santigold makes my soul sing, but that’s likely because she’s from Philadelphia and music from the city of brotherly love has a special twinge of amazingness.  Hope this song gets you up and glorified… have a good week ahead!

I’m sure you already know that Canadian songwriter and singer Joni Mitchell is a musical genius. This is one of my fave songs, but her discography is pretty impeccable – it’s hard to go wrong. November is her birthday month, so celebrate with us and have a great week as a result. Please and thank you…
