Ceux qui me connaissent, savent la grande passion qui m’anime pour les musiques, et en particulier celles venues d’Afrique et le Jazz, donc l’AfroJazz. Voici une petite sélection d’artistes du continent et de leurs compositions, partagée sur mon blog dédié « African Music Forum ».
Petite sélection d’images et citations en mémoire de Nelson Mandela et de la « Madiba Legacy », son héritage intellectuel contre l’apartheid.
“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.”Kadir Nelson – New Yorker cover
Madiba Legacy – Quotes
“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
