Don’t Be A Fool

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 18, 2016

Don’t be a fool

Don’t give your nights to someone else

While giving days to those that really love you

Don’t be a fool like me

And give your life to someone else

While faking love to those who really love you

[Pre-Chorus]

Why couldn’t I have realised

The gravity of telling lies

Who’s weight now shoes upon your faceless mound

I know your heart now and before

But I won’t do it anymore

Trust in me and fall in love again

[Chorus]

Listen to these charms

Cos’ baby I’m not fooling

And fall into these open arms of love

Listen to these charms

Cos’ baby I’m not fooling

And fall into these open arms of love

Listen to these charms

Cos’ baby I’m not fooling around

And fall into these open arms of love

[Saxophone Solo]

[Pre-Chorus]

Why couldn’t I have realised

The gravity of tears in eyes

Who’s weight now shoes upon your faceless smile

I broke your heart now and before

But I won’t do it anymore

Trust in me and fall in love again

Why couldn’t I have realised

The gravity of telling lies

Who’s weight now shoes upon your faceless mound

I know your heart now and before

But I won’t do it anymore

Trust in me and fall in love again

[Chorus]

Listen to these charms

Cos’ baby I’m not fooling

And fall into these open arms of love

Listen to these charms

Cos’ baby I’m not fooling

And fall into these open arms of love

Listen to these charms

Cos’ baby I’m not fooling around

And fall into these open arms of love

And fall into these open arms of love

And fall into these open arms of love

30 April Is International Jazz Day

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 30, 2012

Ethiopian Jazz by Wudasse Band — EteMete (Darling)

Gregory Porter – On My Way To Harlem

According to UNESCO, the international community proclaimed 30 April as “International Jazz Day”. The Day is intended to raise awareness in the international community of the virtues of jazz as an educational tool, and a force for peace, unity, dialogue and enhanced cooperation among people. Many governments, civil society organizations, educational institutions, and private citizens currently engaged in the promotion of jazz music will embrace the opportunity to foster greater appreciation not only for the music but also for the contribution it can make to building more inclusive societies.

Why International Jazz Day?

  • Jazz breaks down barriers and creates opportunities for mutual understanding and tolerance;
  • Jazz is a vector of freedom of expression;
  • Jazz is a symbol of unity and peace;
  • Jazz reduces tensions between individuals, groups, and communities;
  • Jazz fosters gender equality;
  • Jazz reinforces the role youth play for social change;
  • Jazz encourages artistic innovation, improvisation, new forms of expression, and inclusion of traditional music forms into new ones;
  • Jazz stimulates intercultural dialogue and empowers young people from marginalized societies.
