Today I was suffering from writer's block. I've been writing so many poker related articles lately that it is getting more and more difficult to come up with new subjects and fresh angles. Try as I might, nothing was coming to me. So I decided to step totally away from poker writing and onto something I find inspirational. As my blog readers know, I have spent considerable time living and traveling in Africa. They also know that I enjoy anthemic music. So I decided to scour up some good music videos of African songs that I considered particularly moving. They did the trick, removing me from my very narrow perspective of late, and freeing up my mind to consider things on a more global scale.
First off, let me recommend the 1992 movie The Power of One both for the inspirational music and story.
The first couple songs come from the classic South African musical - Sarafina.
Freedom is coming
A classic South African tribute song and movie - Senzenina
Lastly, a film score for another African movie, Tears of the Sun, by Hans Zimmer
My head is cleared and I'm back to writing...
