Nelson Mandela Madiba - New Yorker cover
Oil painting by artist Kadir Nelson

“He was clearly a leader. I wanted to make a simple and bold statement about Mandela and his life as a freedom fighter. The raised fist and the simple, stark palette reminded me of posters and anti-apartheid imagery of the nineteen-eighties. This painting is a tribute to the struggle for freedom from all forms of discrimination, and Nelson’s very prominent role as a leader in the anti-apartheid movement.”

Madiba Legacy – Quotes

Impossible - quote Nelson Madiba Mandela
It always seems impossible until it’s done.

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

Nelson Madiba Mandela
Change the world - quote Nelson Madiba Mandela
We can change the world and make it a better place.

Miles Davis – Full Nelson

L’album Tutu (1986) devait à la base être une collaboration avec Prince, mais c’est finalement avec Marcus Miller que Miles Davis l’a réalisé.

Sa sortie a divisé la critique et les auditeurs, mais il est clair que Davis profitait largement de l’engouement pour la fusion et en profitait pour placer ses improvisations.

L’album rend hommage à la cause des opposants au régime d’apartheid en Afrique du Sud via Desmond Tutu, archevêque qui a reçu le prix Nobel de la paix en 1984. Le titre « Full Nelson » est bien sûr dédié à Madiba, Nelson Mandela.

Live @ North Sea Jazz festival, July 1988
