lyrics

FAMILY TREE

I was an Afro-American woman, on an indigo plantation
I was an Afro-American woman, in a previous incarnation
The times were brutally difficult, I had the blues running in my veins
Even after emancipation, we were still bound up in chains

I once was an Irish coal miner, trying to feed my family
I once was a young Lakota, till they killed me at Wounded Knee
And now, when I listen deeply, I can still hear the pounding of the drum
When I close my eyes I see traces, of the places that I come from

We are each other, I am you are me
My sister is my brother, The infinite family tree

I am a fractal, a small part of the whole
But also I am fundamental, and the universe is my soul
And you, you are a photon, a particle of light
Hurtling past tomorrow, on an timeless cosmic flight

We are each other, I am you are me
My sister is my brother, The infinite family tree

about

Jennis Toronto, Ontario

Jennis (Dennis Gaumond & Jen Gillmor) delivers more sound, variety and fun than one would think could fit into a single touring vehicle. The unique blend of cello and dobro is also augmented by unusual sounds, such as didgeridoo, custom-tuned harmonicas, flute, wah-guitar, jaw harp and wazinator. Their sound is bluesy, at times funky, jazzy or folky, with a hint of exotic ethnic influences. ... more
