Taken from Mzee & Rafiki's Pan-African album "Timhamba (Ancestral Rituals)", "We Are All Africans" featuring Pan-African music legend, Salif Keita is an emotionally gripping song which literally put this writer (Anire Okene) to tears the first time I watched the video. I was so moved by the sounds of the beat as it struck in me, a chord of Pan-Africanism, hope, peace, unity and freedom for all Africans; from the oppression of our aging oppressors and from ancient chains which have held captive our minds and hearts for centuries on-end. I Am reminded by the strings and keys which caress my wary soul that the future of Africa is indeed bright and full of hope. I Am moved to tears each time Salif Keita sings passionately. I Am inspired to inspire Africa for I Am rejuvenated in the essence of "We Are All Africans".
