Product Notes

Wow! Wow! Wow! That incredible wizard is back again. Just as he promised, the second album is out!!!! Pa Bali; the wizard of Bali Nyonga Folklore......... "I just don't know how he does it. I now believe him when he said his first album was 'just the beginning'." The album "NDANSI" carries enormous amount of information that will definitely take fans considerable effort and time to digest. He specifically dedicates this album to; 1. His mother, mommy Cecilia Lepsia, who bore the pains and patience in raising a critically sick child, despite pessimists' requests........ As he puts it, God passed through the dedication and patience of this poor woman and her husband to proof many pessimists wrong. "And without them, this album would never exist," he says. 2. Bernard Fondong and Thomas Kwasen Gwangwa'a, two very inspiring older brothers who were suddenly snatched by the cold hands of death (all by car crashes); and finally to 3. All victims of violence across the world. Using the Bali Nyonga male name "Ndansi" as an example, he points out how unethical it would be for any child not to cater for his/her parents. Therefore, "we the children must, at all times, act like the walker of our parents because tomorrow, we will also need our own children to be our walker and so on......" To him, taking care of one's parents is an inevitable responsibility, the contrary of which is a taboo. That's why he praises and thanks his mom, Na Cecilia Lepsia, in track # 7, telling her he can never pay her enough. This is because "it is a blessing for anyone to grow up and meet the parents alive, so let's do all we can everyday just as a token to appreciate all they did to us even when we were not aware of our own existence." What an amazing thing!! "How then can we ever pay them enough?" To all parents, he says thank you for the dedication and patience in raising that crying baby into somebody. In this album, Pa Bali also uses tract # 2 "Odotila-Southern Cameroons" to further intensify/expose the cry of the people of British Southern Cameroons, who have since 1961 been annexed by a neighboring country, La Republique du Cameroun (LRC). British Southern Cameroons was forced into a federation with LRC by the United Nations in 1961 to form the Federal Republic of Cameroon. In 1972, the president of the federated Cameroon, a citizen of LRC, single-handedly changed the name to United Republic of Cameroon. And, as if not enough, in 1984, a second president (another citizen of LRC), again changed the name back to La Republique du Cameroun (LRC)-the name they had adopted before the federation. This, therefore clearly shows how British Southern Cameroons, just within 2 decades, was rapidly engulfed, swallowed, and annexed by a neighboring country-LRC. All developments that existed in Southern Cameroons before the federation have either been left to ruin and thus extinction, or placed under the management of LRC citizens. Examples here include the road networks, electric plans, all seaports and airports abandoned........ The single oil refinery in the country, SONARA, found in Victoria (Southern Cameroons) pays it's taxes to Douala city Council (a town in LRC) and with over 80% of it's employees coming from LRC. Representation in government is so unbalanced that people of Southern Cameroons origin are looked upon as second class citizens, or better still, aliens. Southern Cameroonian villagers (who speak solely English) are being administered by delegates, commissioners, and D.Os from LRC who speak solely French. And this is not the case in LRC villages.............. Under the banner of SCNC, the people of British Southern Cameroons have been crying foul to the deprivation of their citizens' basic civil rights since 1992 but Britain and the UN have since given them deaf ears. So to Britain and the UN, Pa Bali asks "how many more generations of our people will have to be born as aliens in their fatherland????" Another very important message in this album is Pa Bali's unquenchable and relentless criticism of violence. According to him, there is NO REASON whatsoever for man to take up weapons against man. Thus, in track # 3 "Yesu Christo" (dedicated to ALL victims of violence), he points out the fact that UNITY is the single most powerful body shield that cannot be penetrated by any bullet. And so, he thinks that if humans could come together, realizing that we all have similar basic needs such as food, water, safety, love (according to Abraham Maslow), then our world will be stronger, safer, and man will live longer as ALL weapons will go into extinction...... After being so quiet for while and showing a lot of emotions, he added, "I keep wondering everyday of my life why, and how man can be responsible for man's death. In fact why should we kill each other instead of coming together and helping each other when a natural disaster strikes? It is actually hard to think that in the wake of the Tsunami, Katrina, earthquakes in China, Cyclones in Myanmar, tornados and landslides in the US and other parts of our world, killing hundreds of thousands of our people, we can still afford to pick up arms and kill many more. Many argue that the world cannot be perfect. So, who will make it perfect if we don't begin to strive for perfection? Fellow brothers and sisters, as reasonable creatures of the human family, let's prevent that which can be prevented (war and hate) and unite against that which cannot be prevented (natural disasters)." And to show how deeply touched he is about the conditions of Southern Cameroonians and violence in the world today, he decided to sing both the leadvocal and backup vocals of tracks #2 & 3 all alone. ........... With the inspirations still flowing in, Pa Bali shall surely be back!........Enjoy and share any information gathered with all love ones and friends so that through you, our world may be safer and more peaceful.....
