soul food: afropolitana: k'naan--'waving flag' and 'somalia (live)'

a glimpse into the forthcoming album from K'naan: Troubador

'waving flag'

when i get older

i will be stronger

they'll call me freedom

just like a waving flag.

a melodious tapestry of tragedy and hope encapsulated in a such simple refrain.


so what you know about the pirates terrorize the ocean

to a never know a simple day without a big commotion

it can't be healthy just to live with such a steep emotion

and when i try to sleep...i see coffins closing.

more on his journey here.
