Today, you are a member of … O l’oun t’awa se n’yara Je k’abere

Shall we, Members? Now that we are heading our way out of the tw- faced month of Janus, let’s take a cue from that quixotic, complicated, magnetic, mega-instrumentalist icon of Afrobeat, Fela Kuti, and O l’oun t’awa se n’yara Je k’abere.  According to his intro to the song “Let’s Start” on Fela with Ginger Baker Live, the phrase is Nigerian for “Let’s start what we came into the room to do.” So this week, get your ass in gear and get on with it.
