Brother Ali

From the start of the writing of this book we had a conceptualization that this needed to be a multi-sensory experience that incorporated sound, vibration, sight, image, and thought.

We wanted to provide people with multiple access points to this work. The first person to get involved was executive producer Chaka Mkali/I SELF DEVINE, and because he is a multi talented artist he understood the heart of this project right away and ran with it. He brought in Lioness, Jake, Brother Ali, and many other producers and artists – many of whom you will get to know here on this website.

This book was written out of love and collaboration. The book could not have been written without the help and challenge of others. For years we have wanted to do some artistic work with Chaka and other musicians. When we shared with them the content of the book, they immediately wanted to do music for it. We are humbled by their time and dedication. May the ancestors be pleased by our work and efforts.
