Made from silence

Made From Silence CD cover

Everything you hear on this CD, Worldsong's third album; from the hard-edged, impossibly close harmonies of Eastern Europe to the all-stops-out passion of the African protest song began with, and was made from, silence.

Leopold Anthony Stokowski, the British-born American orchestral conductor responsible for the musical arrangement for Disney's Fantasia, once addressed an audience at Carnegie Hall, New York with the words "A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence." This begins to describe something of how it feels to be part of Worldsong as a new song is introduced and coaxed into life by our inimitable musical director Una May Olomolaiye.

Track listing:

  • Cakule
  • Quasisi mtoto
  • Sinomhlobo
  • O Nai Funa Funa
  • Oh Mary (don't you weep)
  • Maria Durch
  • Ej M�ri Ruzkhe
  • Senzenina
  • Plovi Barko
  • I'll Fly Away
  • Shona Malanga
  • Steal Away
  • Holy
  • Summertime
  • Om Oba Nyi
