Subject: RE: Contemporary African Gospel Songs
Didja check out Jessie Mae, Mizzi??? She is the real deal of African/American gospel... I mean, old time... A complete throwback to the 1920s and 30s recorded stuff that was the real stuff that got passed own from way back before there was recording... Jessie Mae touched the Africa of the 1600s... You hear Africa in her cadence... You hear Africa in her spirit... She's one of the few links... Hey, anyone can play the blues but not everyone has the DNA and spirit to transcend a couple hundred years and generations...

Check out Jessie Mae... She is the shits!!! (that's a good thing)
