Give Sankofa a Gift

"se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki" Return to the Source and Fetch It

Welcome to my page.
I call myself Sankofa, and you may as well.


The concept of SANKOFA is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan people of West Afrika. SANKOFA is expressed in the Akan language as "se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki".
Literally translated it means "it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot"

I have joined this community because I love music and find the source and root of myself in it . . . it gives my life and history and culture a place, and a face and a voice. Jazz, blues, gospel, classical and folk music are the tendrils that connect me with the world and others who dare to know and whisper my secrets.

Jazz music tells the tales of ghosts and fairies; blues, the lore of the sense of loss--the presence of absence; and they are both the voice of a soul without sex, gender, or age. All music has my name, my face, my scent and touches my soul. The lyrical note may recount my sorrow, but the instrumentation can resist, be my determination and liberation,my dominant captor or a lover who kisses so gently my eyelid so that I might see Love.

I am Sankofa.

Introducing Marcus Roberts And The Modern Jazz Generation

At Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he was once a rising star, the pianist returns with a new 11-piece band which combines his trio with many of the younger musicians he has mentored.

Anat Cohen & Choro Aventuroso At Jazz At Lincoln Center

She comes from Israel, lives in the U.S. and has a deep affinity for Brazilian music — especially the improvisatory instrumental music known as choro. The clarinetist leads a new quartet in concert.

Clark Terry, Ebullient Jazz Trumpeter, Has Died

A member of the Count Basie and Duke Ellington Orchestras, Terry also enjoyed a long freelance career which included jazz education and a featured slot in NBC's Tonight Show band. He was 94.

Jackie Cain On Piano Jazz

Cain lends her smooth, feathery voice to "Wait 'Til You See Her" and "You Don't Know What Love Is."

How To Turn A One-Man Band Into A 10-Piece Orchestra

When trumpeter and composer/arranger Steven Bernstein started working with the virtuoso pianist Henry Butler, certain unique ideas — "Henryisms" — came to the fore.
