Tune of the Day for Tuesday 24 December 2019: Shakara by Fela Kuti

Following on from yesterday’s message about the truth comes a track from Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti who consistently vocalised the truth, challenging “the authority” in his native Nigeria throughout his life. At 13-minutes long, Shakara is a mainly instrumental track with a few pertinent lyrics in Yoruba from Fela Kuti that ridicules boasters and braggers, challenging those who make the loudest noise to put up or shut up. Shakara is a message to be aware of those who “shout the loudest”, but also to take that awareness further and beyond to see who and what is fuelling that behaviour in them – in other words look for the source of that energy. Often those that brag and shout the loudest, like those political leaders we’re currently seeing in the world today in “leadership” roles, are puppets of others behind them – those working “behind the scenes” that are the real culprits. This process of discernment that is so innate within your being, applied in your life is what saves your life and allows you to determine who truly is friend or foe.

Tune of the Day is a new divinatory series here on my blog where I share some musical vibes. Music is a very powerful tool with numerous messages to be gleaned from a tune, whether it’s got vocals on it or it’s purely instrumentals. It also has massive healing benefits too.

Whether you have an ear for music or are simply looking for divination of a different medium altogether, music most certainly moves us and offers guidance. And just like with tarot, music will have different meanings to different readers or in this case listeners. With each Tune of the Day I provide a general overview of some of the messages I’ve got from the track, but of course you may listen to it and get different signs or symbols. Enjoy!
