Musically speaking, I've never been as happy as I am today. I say a great big thank you to God of life, for his protection, the art of music, and for being there for me all the time. My greatest joy today is that after many years of hard work, I have finally created an album that puts the Kalimba ( the Long) where I have always dreamed it would be. Over the past 24 years, I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the greatest musicians in Canada. Many of those talented musicians have collaborated with me on this album and I am forever grateful for their generosity, sensitivity and expertise.

To the members of Kalimba Kalimba, you are my family and I love you. My gratitude to you is present in my heart every second of my day. Each of you shines on this album and that light will stay in you forever. A special thanks to all of the guest musicians, your incredible contributions have elevated the sound of the kalimba and ngoni. Thanks to Jeff McCulloch at Wellesley Sound for his support, understanding and patience. Thank you to Conseil des Arts de l’Ontario for your financial support and programs that support artists across Ontario.

From the bottom of my heart I say thank you to each and all. Thank you, thank you, I will never thank you enough. I know that the spirit of art and music will bless you and bless you to continue to inspire your creativity.


Musicalement parlant, je n'ai jamais été aussi heureux que je le suis aujourd'hui. Je dis à Dieu, un grand grand merci pour la vie, pour sa protection, l'art de la musique, et d'être là pour moi tout le temps. Ma grande joie aujourd'hui, c'est qu’après de nombreuses années de dur labeur, j'ai finalement créé un album qui met le Kalimba (le long) là où j'ai toujours rêvé de le voir. Au cours des 24 dernières années, je me sens très privilégié d'avoir eu l'occasion de rencontrer et travailler avec certains des plus grands musiciens du Canada. Beaucoup de ces musiciens talentueux ont collaborés avec moi sur cet album et je serai éternellement reconnaissant pour leur générosité, sensibilité et leur expertise.

Pour les membres de Kalimba Kalimba, vous êtes ma famille et je vous aime. Ma gratitude envers vous est présent dans mon cœur à chaque seconde de la journée. Chacun d'entre vous brille sur cet album, et que cette lumière reste en vous pour toujours. Un grand merci à tous les musiciens invités, vos contributions incroyables ont élevées le son du kalimba et le ngoni. Merci à Jeff McCulloch de Wellesley Sound pour son soutien, sa compréhension et sa patience. Merci au Conseil des Arts de l'Ontario pour votre aide financière et des programmes qui soutiennent les artistes de l'Ontario.

Du fond de mon cœur je dis merci à tous et chacun. Merci, merci, je ne vous remercierai jamais assez. Je sais que l'esprit de l'art et de la musique vous bénira et vous bénisse de continuer à inspirer votre créativité.
