17/52 Stills Collection

HHI COLLAGE

 

This is my hubby’s band, The Hayden Hack Infusion. This is one of the pics I put together for the booklet of their debut album. It is called The Colour of…. and you will soon be able to purchase the physical CD and digital downloads from their website. Check it out here. They are also on FB, soundcloud etc. Anyhoo, what a colour bunch they are! Have a listen to their tunes. They have worked hard.

11/52 Stills Collection

Something a little bit different this week. These images were taken when I was last in South Africa. 2009. All three are taken using film. I have been going through all my South African photos finding images to use on The Hayden Hack Infusion‘s debut album, The Colour of…..

It has been inspiring looking back through these images and makes me want to go back at the earliest opportunity. (Not a cheap feat with a family of four!) Hopefully we can get our act together and save enough to get over there at the end of this year.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

A tribute to a very special man. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Thank you.

Amandla!

Below are the lyrics to a song my talented husband wrote in tribute to Nelson (or Madiba as he is also known).

An African man
I am
Born into a Rainbow Nation
The colour of our skin no matter no
It’s the blood that-
It’s the blood that run

See my history could be better
I have never been much of a reader
but the way I, I see it
We grow all our Knowledge though experience
And I lived it
Watched it as a child every day
As an

An African man
I am
Born into a Rainbow Nation
The Colour of our skin no matter no
It’s the blood that
It’s the blood that run

From a family (repeat)

See for most of his life-time of 27 yr
They Exiled him to an island
out of fear
And they almost almost sent him blind
Through forcing him to dig down, down, down deep in the quarries of lime
For his “crimes against humanity”????
No, No they didn’t see
No, No they didn’t see
What is Unity

He was a visionary
He was a Visionary eeeeehhh!!

Then as as he walked out with his head held high
Screaming AMANDLA!!!(power in Zulu)
With his fist in the sky
Singin’ freedom for all
Freedom, freedom for all (repeat)

Cause we know that everything will be OK
one day
OK OK OK OK OK one day

One day…..
