Hello, I was looking for the lyrics of Malaika and stumbled across this page by accident! The music must be good, I'm interested. I don't suppose anyone can tell me what the lyrics are...?

I downloaded some of your songs and I am looking forward to seeing what they sound like. We saw a great acapala group about a month ago in Bloomington, IN. I think the name was Vida. If you ever get to the midwest let me know. My wife is a singer/songwriter with a great voice, that is her homepage listed above.

I'm new to this a cappella web site, but your group sounds like one I'd like to listen to. Maybe I can download a sound-byte to check out your style of singing before I buy. I know Primarily A Cappella has that capability. Are you ever going to perform in Birmingham, Alabama? If so, I'd like to know when and where. Sincerely, Dana Lawrence.

I am a counselor working with women who have been sexually assaulted, i.e., raped, abused as children, and victims of domestic violence. I have played your music for some of these women to a great sense of self. I saw you at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and was touched. You are now touching the lives of some women who are very thankful for the uplifting message you project. Thank you.

WOW !!! What a site. It's actually good to see people I an recognize, and have grown up with. Hi, this is Stella's brother and Neema's twin brother. Seeing them perforn in concert is truly different from hearing them in the bathroom, or in the garage. They sound professional in the " real " world rahter than at home. The homepage has a nice international feel to it, and it's actally fun moving around through the different pages. Keep up the good work guys, and Neema and Stella...see you at home!!! Peace Out....Heri M.

Very well done. As Stella's brother ans Nemma's twin, the personal bio's are well done. Actually I'm impressed, because it has such a professional and international fell for something ( and people ) I have grown up with all my life. So keep up the good work, and I have a funny feeling I'll see alot of two of the band members.... Peace Out, Heri Muhero

Hi,Beth, Of course, I saw Malaika at the O'Brien Theatre in Renfrew, and your voices and lyrics swept me away. I also just received (last week) your "Dance On The Earth" CD, Beth, which I am listening to as I write to you. Thank you for your beautiful poetry and music, Beth. You are part of the missing link on this planet, and I am so honoured to have sung harmonies with you back on Reddy Avenue... and now to rediscover you in our dance on the earth. Please tell Ian Tamblyn (whose Old Chelsea septic system I once had the honour of excavating and unplugging) that the production qualities on this CD are impeccable. One other comment: Cindy Lyons, at the Renfrew Music and Moviemat is interested in carrying your and Malaika's CDs. Her office phone numner is (613) 432-9309, and she asked me to ask you (or Chris) to contact her. Thanks, Beth. You are a poet, beloved beyond current ken. Jim

As a huge a cappella fan (we won't go into how many CD's I have, concerts I've been to, or groups I've sung with), I have to say you four are the best female group I've come across. A big Thank-you to Jim for that. So when are you going to come to the midwest (specifically within 3 hours drive from Lincoln, NE!) Thank you for your style and music. Keep on singing.

Hi! I met Beth at Summerfolkin Owen Sound last year through mutual friends Gary and Barb Weinger. I was just surfing the net and looking for folk music, etc. when I found your home page. It's great. And a good example to other groups to put somethingon the net for all us fans. I feel like a dope because you have been here at Sunfest in London, Ontario and I did not find that out until today which is Sunday. Oh, well, next time. Keep up the good work. Kitty Lewis
