    Sankofa Music Series – T. Rex

    Written, Compiled and Edited by Myles Crawley

    The concept of Sankofa is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan people of West Africa. “Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone or been stripped of, can be reclaimed, revived, preserved and perpetuated. Thus, Sankofa Music Series will examine our modern roots and the early influences of rock music, in the hope that we can carry it forward in the creation of something new.. Today’s subject is T. Rex.

    Sankofa Music Series: David Bowie

    The concept of Sankofa is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan people of West Afrika. Sankofa is expressed in the Akan language as “se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki.” Literally translated it means “it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot”.”Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the best of what our past has to teach us, so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward. Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone or been stripped of, can be reclaimed, revived, preserved and perpetuated. Thus, Project Rhythm Seed’s “Sankofa Music Series” will examine our modern roots and the early influences of rock music. Today’s subject is David Bowie.
