"West Africa, and The Gambia specifically, is being summoned culturally to the high table of global art; the supreme council of world creativity; the united nations of continental rhythm; to establish a truth that can never be undermined or exposed as fallacy. The roots of all of the music that our brothers and sisters in the Caribbean and N. America have produced in the last 100 years can be traced directly to West Africa. Let me spell this out really clearly so that there can be no misunderstandings. The great great grandfathers of people living here today, the blood relations of  Serigne Mass Kah, carried with them a genetic coding to the new world! Their progeny produced the greatest contemporary revolution in creative thinking that the world has experienced. These people were itinerants one minute and global heroes the next. They played a music that was considered subversive and yet completely desirable and necessary. They turned the standard idea of european classical harmony on its bottom, picked it up on the other side, danced with it awhile, and then played it again even harder. And what is clear is that the technique that they used was somehow carried on the wind across 3000 miles of ocean, and is still here today in the traditional music of the villages!"
