To the Creator, I touch the ground below, and my bosom, and raise my hands to high heaven, in complete awe.

That life is constantly in motion, that it is a rhythm – a rhythm to be listened to – may have eluded many a civilization. But not Africa. The word for rhythm as used by the Malinke, for example, is Foli.

What African philosophy has always stressed, and what this film on Baro seems to have concretized in the minds of many, is emphasize that the Creator Him/Herself is Rhythm.

So how can we join in this brave effort to attain the high beauty of our Creator? In the steps taken by the innocent toddler? In the fetching of water from the riverside? In the beating of steel and iron into castanets? In the breath of the woodwind, or the percussion of the drum? In the vibration of the air, or in the mind of the composer, the appreciation of the audience? Or in the all-together kindling distant memories of heaven?

God has a few of us whom he whispers in the ear; the rest may reason and welcome if they so choose: but it is what we Africans understand and seek to accomplish – to capture the Creator in all Her Majesty!>>

FOLI similar to 2 of the 7 principles of the Kyballion

The Principle of Vibration

    "Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates."--The
    Kybalion.

The Principle of Rhythm

    "Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides;
    all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
    everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the
    measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates."--The
    Kybalion.

There is literally music in everything we do.  We just are not aware of it, vacuuming, scooping litter, doing dishes.

Yes even when we are still there is a rhythm and it's movement.  The heart rhythm beating and movement within the body.

There is even a hum that can be heard in stillness and silence. 

My neighbor and her 4 kids create lots of rhythm for me to listen to. hehe

I love it!

So beautiful.

Brazilian samba has a lot of Africa in my opinion.

“Rhythm is the soul of life. The whole universe revolves in rhythm. Everything and every human action revolves in rhythm.”

― Babatunde Olatunji

Everything is rhythm. Everything, all work, all sound, is rhythm.  Every step we take is rhythm. Every word we speak is rhythm. So we’re all in this rhythm right now. Everything is rhythm. There is no movement without rhythm …

Indeed!
