Influences:

I listened to Michael Jackson when I was a kid because my sister would play it all the time.

My parents were a big influence on me because they would sing their church choir songs on our long driving trips, and I aimed to improve my voice so that I could sing beautifully.

I’ve been told I sound like Joni Mitchell at times.  But I love world music, rock, r&b, some techno and hiphop.. and sacred music.

My favourite sacred music artists are: Sacred Earth and Shimshai.

Other artists I like are Murray Kyle – Conscious Roots and Soul, such beautiful heart inspiring lyrics. The Unusual Suspects – A Funky Balkan Gypsy Brass Band I love to dance to. Xavier Rudd. Mike Love – Reggae, they play with such open hearts and open lyrics. Michael Franti – same with Michael, such an open heart. Nahko and Medicine for the People – I admire his purpose and presence and his words. Flo Rida – Hip Hop, I just like some of the melodies in his music, not so much the lyrics. Pharrell Williams – I like his happy-go-lucky sounding music. Charlie Puth – I also like the happy-go-lucky sound in Charlie’s music. Ed Sheeran – I really like the sound of his music. Train.

And some oldies: Nina Simone. Passenger. The Pretenders. Beatles. Tracey Chapman.

–El Morya

A Personal Message from Ninindi

“Hi, I’m known as Ninindi, which means River Running Free.

I am a mother of six children..NinindiandTchKali-Nature

And because I walk barefoot most of the time and consider myself an Earth Walker with my connection to nature and Earth, I’ve also been known somewhat as an Earth Mother amongst my Tribe.

I also love music. My love of music started out early for me, when my parents would sing in harmony together. At a young age, it gave me a love of singing.

I find myself naturally drawn to, and naturally able to dance, sing and play music.

Hence calling my website Earth Mother Music.

Through my connection to nature and Earth, and my ability to connect to the essence of anything intuitively, I express this through music and song. Essence is the core or inner truth. Experience the essence while you listen and absorb via my music and songs.Ninindi_JoyPainted

I’m also a bit of a melodic storyteller. I do often love to sing without words. Since the essence of real communication is not words, it’s the feeling beyond the words.

Have you ever heard of how two people who speak completely different languages are still able to communicate without words?

Sound is foundational to life.

Sound speaks to our ‘deeper’ awareness.

Sound is the essence or most elemental state of vibration, which is the foundation of our existence.

We all know that music has a profound effect on the human psych. It has the power to generate immense change through brain synchronisation, or altered states of consciousness.

I aim to inspire people to take inspired action through uplifting lyrics and positive directives in those lyrics, and through the purity of sound and music.

I have experienced a lot of transformation in my life, and I believe, in this moment, that life is all about transformation.

We are constantly transforming from one state to another. And my aim is to offer music as an incentive to inspire positive and affirmative change in people.

I like to think myself as an energy activist because I believe that through self-transformation, the transformation of others is activated, through the fields of information surrounding us all.

And so.. ‘Let us change the world for the better!’ “
