Ninindi’s Insider Secrets

A Personal Message from Ninindi

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

I am a mother of six children..Earth Mother Music Woman and Child

I walk barefoot most of the time and consider myself an earth walker: walker of the earth. I’ve been called an Earth Mother amongst my Tribe, hence Earth Mother Music.

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

Through my connection to nature, and my ability to intuit, I connect to essence and express through music and song. Experience the essence when you listen to my songs.

Earth Mother Music - PaintedI also love to sing without words. – melodic/vocal instrumental.

The essence of real communication is felt, not said.

Sound is a foundation of life, the most elemental state of vibration.  Sound speaks to our inner awareness.

Music has a profound effect on our biology. It has the power to produce immense change in your being via brain synchronisation, and altered states of consciousness.

My aim is to inspire people to take inspired action from listening to my music.

From one spark to another. ”  - Ninindi

Who Inspires Ninindi?

Earth Mother MusicInfluences: 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. Ed Sheeran – I really like the sound of his music. Train.

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