Album Notes
Chenyelu Bomani
(chin-yay-loo bo-mah-nee)

I began writing poetry and stories in the late 60's. I performed solo and occasionaly with a few other performers and we called ourselves "The Black Ghosts of Truth" back in the day. The street scene was my main stage. Performing at parks, festivals, street corners, etc. Later, I did sets in Detroit at "Rappa House" and at the "Moon Glow Lounge".

Needless to say, I was a child of the turbulent 60's which had an immense impact on me in many ways. I obtained a degree majoring in Mental Health Technology and minored in Substance Abuse Counseling.

The current volumes (yes, there is more than one) "Brown Eyes" grew out of the current societal milieu and has direct root in observations, media and history. The monologue on Vol. 1 explains the current setting for all of the spoken material. It is not just an African American thing!. The characterizations have become a part of the national and global landscape. People will be able to relate to the messages contained within each spoken piece. There is food for thought and my hopes are that listeners are entertained and will assimilate the music and the messages.

My intention is that the youth have a better understanding of the things that surround them which can alter their life and the lives of others. Ignorance is not bliss!.
We all have the ability to make choices but it is crucial that when making a choice it is made by an informed decision.

Peace and Love.......Bomani

This is a nice cd.

Gloria Luster, Pres./CEO Windsor Regional Arts Corp.

Poetic ambiance, Pragmatic content, Artistic portrayal
The CD has a variety of musical line ups and in combination with the spoken word it portrays the raw wounds of societal anguish leaving us to ponder and reflect on the way things are and have been!
