~ Phukira ~
This song is a calling to our inner child that is uninhibited and lives out our truest desires. We all have dreams and each one is called to rise to make their dreams a reality. In here is a beckoning to awaken the seed within us and allow it to germinate.
The song pays homage to the popular Malawian folk tale of Kamdothi. “Kamdothi” is a chewa word which simply means from the ground. The folk tale ends in tragedy and leaves the listener forewarned, Wishing for a better end. This song is the reawakening of that hope that is within us. It gives light to the hope there is in tragedy. It encourages one to germinate and bring forth fruit.
This is a song of hope and the potential that lies in a seed.
“Phukira is a calling out to our inner child. Uninhibited, this child freely speaks of our truest desires. This firey passion is the core of who we are.
We all have dreams that we may be afraid of voicing. This song is beckoning us to awaken the seed within us and allow it to germinate.
Germination happens after a period of dormancy, in response to warmth and water. The warm tone of this song provides the invitation to germinate and be rooted in this season of rain.
This song pays homage to the popular Malawian folktale of Kamdothi.
“Kamdothi” is a chewa word which simply means “from the ground/soil”. The folktale ends in tragedy and leaves the listener forewarned, wishing for a better end but it is too late. In a way this folktale awakens one to the perils of life when one is not aware of their surroundings or the season they’re in. This song reawakens hope, It gives light to the bitter sweet ending of Kamdothi. It encourages us to be our truest selves. To germinate, take root and bring forth fruit. A reminder that from the ground, the only way is up.
This song speaks of hope and the potential that lies in the seed; our core. The potential to grow in the ground we find ourselves right now.
The word Phukira means germinate, the constant call of the word is a beckoning to our core. This song whispers that our dreams are possible, our dreams are necessary and we must begin right where we are. “
