about *-*

Jusi I Love is a dedication to wonderful songs, artists, hymns from a beautiful and rich continent.

*Jusi (sheng) = music

These traveling showmen have captured in music the torments, hopes, and disappointments of the century. Their words are as pale as shroud, as red as spilled blood, as black as the mine, as green as the forest, and when reflecting happy times, as multicolored as the peoples of Africa themselves. Their notes exhale the sweat of toil, the musk of passion, and the fragrance of festival. Their tempos are as languid as an evening in the village, or as speedy as the late-night “drugstore” where you can drown your fate in drink.
