So i don’t like to generally confess to watching CNN; however, i must if I am to show some generosity in getting this word out.
I was watching CNN this morning and they interviewed a band from South Africa called Just Jinjer. The group is currently touring around the US. While I have only heard a couple of their songs, the one above was previewed on the forementioned news channel and i found it very worth posting about. Also, just so we know (as i didn’t), ‘just jinjer’ is also a common response to the question ‘how are you doing?’ in South Africa.
Tomorrow night we are doing a Shema entitled “How to start a good riot?: Upset the Religious”. There was something of this song that resonated with it. Maybe we’ll use it….maybe.
