I became 60 years old. The souvenir album was made as 60 years of mark.
I am too ridiculous in order to call it an old compilation. However, them who died before becoming 60 years old. They thought of my grandmother, a mother's parents, a wife's father, the friend, etc., and made the album from the impressive thought.
Are 60 years a long period and is it a short period?
...Probably it is not time. It is "something." I would like to comfort it and to put gratitude.
Pire is the performance of Xylophone of the name called KOGIRI of Ghana. It greets., exercise of an arm and talks.
The performance style in which it is characteristic also in African music. It is full of the real thrill of improvisation.
I think. Originally it was used for the communication of the same Xylophone language as a talking drum, and also was used like origin mystic words.
I am the language before becoming language and am doing the performance.
Language is not simply imitated. Spiritual poesy essence is performed in the form of a phrase as it is.
I feel that the big power of a prayer arises there.
