..of dreams and JUST A (brilliant) BAND

Its been a minute since I posted...Heres the couple of cents...

FIRST if you dont know who JUST A BAND are then you need to get with the program hombre... post-haste!!! This has to be one of the most eclectic and creative music groups to come out of Kenya in a while...I might go as far as to say..out of Africa infact! They not only make the music....a delightful fusion of techno, acoustic, Afro, funk...etc...they also do their own videos, photography (
jim chuchu {photography}),animation...and from one of my sources -I hear they are generally really nice guys:-)
Yoda would say 'TALENT, they have MAAADDD' and then he'd get a little excited, and proceed to swish his light saber in the air as he pumped it to the funky techno beats that pimp the remix/remake of Five Alives 'Oh Ndio'!
Ok so heres the link: 
Or check out their YouTube channel : just a bandwidth
Or Facebook : Just a Band|Facebook

..Decide for yourself...And then if when you like it...please buy it...and support the Kenyan music industry :-)


I also wanted to post this poem:

A Dream Deferred - Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

This is something to think about for anyone who lives (like I have) waiting to do things tommorow...-for never comes! 
Im learning to live by Faith...more than just a mustard seed...Gods guiding these steps :-)
