Bi Kidude

I stood in awe as my grandmother played the drum, her voice echoing though time. Her firm legs planted steadily on stage.

Bi Kidude

In the DVD about her life, she says that there are no men nowadays. That women have to work doubly hard to provide for their families and men. Who am I to question what she has seen in her 105+ years of living.

Her voice is strong and her spirit transcends all space and time. I am in awe of the woman who sings about what she has seen and is not afraid to speak about what she sees.
