about

“I Too Dream of Things Beautiful” (Jazz Version) features internationally renowned vocalist Navasha Daya and the well polished talents of Jazz pianist Allyn Johnson.

“I Too Dream of Things Beautiful” (Jazz Version) commences with Daya exalting her warrior spirit in the West African Yoruba language. From the very first note she sings it is clear that Daya has tapped into the pulse of freedom. With Johnson and band she takes listeners on a liberating spiritual journey.

“I Too Dream of Things Beautiful” (Jazz Version) also includes the stellar musicianship of Kush Abadey (drums), Kris Funn (double bass) and Lorenzo Johnson (organ).

lyrics

Emi na nla ala daada - I am the one dreaming beautifully
Emi na nla ala daada - I too dream, I too dream
Emi na nla ala daada - I too dream of things beautiful
Emi na nla ala daada - I too dream

We want healing
We want justice
We want, we want freedom

I too dream, I dream of things beautiful
I too dream, I dream of things beautiful
I do have the right, to dream of things beautiful
I do have the right, to dream of things beautiful

A grandfather freed from prison after 40 long years
embracing his children's children for the very first time

A grandmother whose family lets her know how much they love
her for all she endured for present and future generations.

Emotions and sensations are electric in you.
You've got to free them to give birth to the beauty in you.
I know it's hard to dream when so much has been taken from you.
But you've just got to remember that dreams will lift you.

(adlib) ooh

(scat)

I, I do dream, I do dream, I do dream. I do have the right, you do have the right. To dream of things, to dream of things, to dream of things beautiful.

(Piano solo)

Background: I too have the right, to dream of things beautiful, I too have the right to dream of things beautiful.

(scat)
