     As we celebrate Independence Day in the United States, we tend to reflect on our faith, family, food, and most importantly freedom! Ronald Daise was able to capture these important themes as they pertain to Gullah culture and history and translate it into art. In his new album Gullah Tings Fa Tink BoutRonald shares with the listener his personal insight and experience as a Gullah Geechee native of St. Helena Island, South Carolina. 

    Many of the millennial generation may remember Gullah only as a thing of the past and only something they are vaguely familiar with from Nickelodeon’s award-winning television show “Gullah Gullah Island.” Ronald starred on the show and even contributed lyrics for the theme song. Two decades later, Ronald still finds his unique warm way to welcome listeners to journey with him and learn more about one of America’s most vibrant and rich cultures. 

    In this project, the songs “Gullah Geechee Mean a Lotand “Dats Right, I Am a Gullah!Ronald was able to share the history of the language, the culture, and the people. He discusses notions of freedom and values that are embedded in seemingly unrelated practices such as preparing rice and other traditional dishes in the song ‘De Rice Sing’. Ronald blends traditional stomp and clap gospel with Gullah/Geechee, West African, and Caribbean styles to create melodies and rhythms that make you want to dance and sing along! “De African Sperit Come Dong On We”stands out among the other songs on the album and reminds me of the days when I played my djembe at the Annual Gullah Festival in Beaufort, South Carolina. 

    Gullah Tings Fa Tink Bout should be enjoyed by all Gullah Geechee people and people of all ages around the world who want some Gullah things to think about and discuss in the family room, the dance room, or the classroom! So, “put your foot in your hand” and get your copy of Gullah Tings Fa Tink Bout today!

  4. A humble admirer of the entire culture of the Hip Hop culture and genre of music, Saidu Ezike’s love affair with Hip Hop is fairly new but pretty intense. While living in North Philadelphia, Saidu co-founded an educational program whose very curriculum was dedicated entirely to the Hip Hop lifestyle and culture. Appropriately named Cypha 101, the program sought to enrich youthful minds in the ways of lyrical composition as well as recording and battle rapping, all the while enforcing the importance of understanding the History of Hip Hop and its founding fathers. Check out Saidu’s flow in this profound video from his latest release.
