|Today, four members of Daughters of Creative Sound, an African-American women's drum and percussion group, came to visit the Riverside-Salem Environmental Chapel. They performed a variety of drum songs, told stories, and sang songs. The four who came were Yvonne Harris ("Big Mama Blue), Sharon Holley, Karima Amin, and Sandra Williams Bush.|
They started with a "hello song" that came from Malawi, a landlocked nation in southeastern Africa. It borders Tanzania, Mozambique, and Zambia. In this hello song, greetings are extended from and entire person, not just the person's voice.
"Hello. I see you with my eyes. I see you with my heart. I see you with all of me."
