Wembi''s "Footprints in the Sand" is a unique blend of soulful and inspirational songs which have been among the top rated songs on sites such as https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com. The music immerses the listener subtly into a wide range of emotions such as happiness, inspiration and gratitude. Wembi''s original songs contained on this album are expressed through styles as varied as Blues, Soft Rock, Jazz, R&B,Worldbeat, New Age and Christian contemporary https://www.tradebit.comy are a reflection of Wembi''s diversed musical background and shows his appreciation of these styles as well and their influences on https://www.tradebit.com simpleness of the lyrics in his songs are refreshing and quite moving. In "Maman"(the word for "mother"in French, one of the 5 languages Wembi speaks fluently), the song is presented as an expression of gratitude through a poetry, from a child to a parent.
The simple, sincere and hearfelt manner that Wembi interprets this song he wrote for his own mother, often leaves the audience at his LIVE perfomances, in tears. Everyone and anyone who has ever had a mother, will relate to this song. In "Daddy, please don''t cry,"this beautiful ballad deals with the apparent heart wrenching sense of helplessness that a father faces upon discovering that his child has an incurable disease. What is interesting to see throughout this song is that the child, although aware of the consequences of the disease she is afflicted with, reassures her father in a moving manner that despite the tragedy, their bond of love and affection for one another will never change regardless of the outcome. Wembi in this original piece demonstrates that sometimes the inspiration needed to overcome tragedies in life, may not always come from those we expect to be strong through the hard times. "Daddy, please don''t cry" is another one of those ballads that will leave you looking for your kleenex at the end yet will fill you also with a renewed sense of hope and love for those closest to you.
But not all songs are dark and emotional. Wembi also has the ability to use his album as a source of inspiration and social change such is in the up tempo pieces such as "Only Love heals the heart "and "Open your eyes."(make sure you to check out the great African tam-tams on this upbeat song).
Spirituality is an important part of Wembi''s life and this is clearly expressed in several songs and instrumental pieces throughout "Footprints in the Sand." What is unique about Wembi''s spiritual songs is that they are truly universal such as in "Then a Light came through,"the album title song, "Footprints in the Sand,"and the powerful and beautiful ballad "Father in the Sky,". Faith and God are constant sources of strength and hope to those who seek it during challenging times.
For those looking for instrumental themes, " Revelations", " The Beauty within" and Sitting under an Angel''s wings" will give you an opportunity to be transported emotionally to a place filled with healing and peace and in the theme "Portrait in Motion", Wembi combines a variety of musical instruments including a breath taking solo electric guitare piece that surely could make legendary Carlos Santana smile with pride.
But no listener should allow themselves to miss Wembi''s "M''vula"( Rain/Blessing), a song written and performed in Swahili but with a worldbeat appeal. The song''s distinctive and primitive African beat coupled with Wembi''s soulful voice, give the entire work a raw and instictive feel that connects with something deeply human in each one of us.
Finally, if you have a Wedding coming up, " I never knew what Love was" is a classic ballad that will seal your special moment or anniversary with heartfelt memories.
Overall, "Footprints in the Sand" is a great album and will truly leave you reflective, refreshed and inspired.
