I don't think I have ever linked to one of my own pieces, but making an exception here. Roots World may be the only place on the Internet where one can find authentic roots music from every culture on the planet. So this link serves as an introduction to Roots World and a means to tell the story of the Banyamulenge in a different fashion.
'Rya Joro' means 'Unforgettable Night' or 'Bad Night.' The video was created to remember what happened during the Gatumba massacre, but also makes mention of other massacres and displacements. All of the artists are Banyamulenge living in Kenya.
Music, dance and poetry are among the most important parts of the Kinyarwanda culture. Viewers of “Rya Joro” will notice that the stories of massacres of the Banyamulenge people are told in epic fashion.
