NIGERIAN MUSIC XVI: SIJI

Friday, November 13, 2009

Siji is a Nigerian musician now based in the U.S. Like every good Nigerian child, he completed a Masters degree in Engineering Product Design and then, began making and releasing his music.

Here is his song, "Yearning For Home". As one who thinks of 'home' on a daily basis and yearns to return, even if for a visit, I appreciate this song greatly. There are many references to Nigeria, Nigerian music - Afrobeat, and Yoruba culture (can you spot the ayo game?). The video is tastefully made and has a neo-afrobeat/soul/Brazilian feel to it.

Enjoy




Thanks to Mr Starks at World Famous Naija Blog for introducing me to this wonderful Nigerian artist.
