Erykah Badu ~ The Healer

Erykah Badu's fifth opus -New Amerykah, Part Two: Return of the Ankh- comes out March 30! The promotional material was inspired by Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 cult classic La Montaña Sagrada (The Holy Mountain) And the video for her latest single “Jump Up in the Air (Stay There)” is totally reminiscent of Sun Ra's "Calling Planet Earth". Erykah knows what's up, she's been incorporating esoterica into her work since the beginning!!! ~Each One Teach One~ Check out her website for a lil' teaser!



"Humdi Lila Allah Jehova Yahweh Dios Ma'ad Jah Rastafara fyah, dance, sex, music, hip-hop...it's bigger than religion Hip-Hop! Told you, we aint dead yet we been livin' through your internet. You don't have to believe everything you think, we've been programmed, wake up, we miss you. They call you indigo, we call you Africa. Get baptized in the ocean of the people, say reboot, refresh, restart. fresh page, new day, o.g.'s, new key..." Lyrics from The Healer

I remember listening to Erykah Badu a few years ago and being quite enamored with her sound...but shame on me! I had quite forgotten about her until now - thanks for this post and for bringing her to the forefront of my mind. Thanks too, for bringing your enthusiasm to the post...it really shines through - it is quite tangible and infectious!
