Armand Ntep is both a unique vocalist and a prolific, innovative composer. His vocal talent is broad in terms of octave and style from silky baritone croon to pygmy-inspired syncopation to tender tenor ballads. His compositions run the gamut from salsa Jazz to reggae to traditional "lihongo" from his native Cameroon

“What is the quality of your intent?

Certain people have a way of saying things that shake us at the core. Even when the words do not seem harsh or offensive, the impact is shattering. What we could be experiencing is the intent behind the words. When we intend to do good, we do. When we intend to do harm, it happens. What each of us must come to realize is that our intent always comes through. We cannot sugarcoat the feelings in our heart of hearts. The emotion is the energy that motivates. We cannot ignore what we really want to create. We should be honest and do it the way we feel it. What we owe to ourselves and everyone around is to examine the reasons of our true intent.

My intent will be evident in the results.~~~Thurgood Marshall

Harriet Tubman
Harriet Tubman was born in 1820 as a slave in Dorchester, Maryland. She led a lot of slaves to freedom.  

Harriet Tubman was the "Moses of her people." She helped slave get from Dorchester, Maryland to the free states in the North. Her and her "passengers" used the Underground Railroad.

The Underground Railroad was a line of houses where the runaway slaves hid during the day. They traveled by night, moving from hiding place to place, until they reached a safe destination.
"She grew up like a neglected weed- ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it." Even though she had never been free, Harriet cared so much about freedom that she made it her mission to free other slaves. She wasn't selfish; she thought about everyone but herself and helped others. Harriet overcame many dangers and never got caught as she led many slaves to freedom. She once said, "I never ran my train off the track, and I never lost a passenger."  Read more...

The consummate musician, producer, arranger, songwriter and artist in his own right, Wayne Linsey’s list of credits reads like a who’s who in contemporary music. Legendary names like Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder are among the plethora of artists with whom the L.A.-based maestro has worked on stage and in the recording studio. Super producers like Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds and hitmakers like Whitney Houston and Earth, Wind & Fire always call Wayne to work on their projects; as a touring musician, Wayne spent many years with the ever-popular band Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, lending his distinctive and soulful touch as the primary keyboardist to the group’s energetic live show.

    A name doesn't make the music. It's just called that to differentiate it from other types of music. 
    ART BLAKEY
    Pyramids and Sphinx (Horemakhet) at Giza and much, much more...
    Notice the resemblence! Who are we? Why did they destroy our Pyramids?


    Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
