about

As is the case on the global scale – there's friction, disruption and confrontation of all kinds on your local scale, too. In your neighborhood anyway – where canyons of concrete, barrages of light and the rat race rule rather than rural expanse, muse and peace, calm and quiet of old and far-sightedness and vision of any kind are getting lost more and more by the minute.

In the beginning was a starry, starry sky. Horizon. Still of the night. The world was comprehensible. Life obvious.

Now there's pollution – of light and noise, media overkill, banks and money… the works. No more starry starry night. No horizon. No still of the night – and hardly any understanding of the whys, the wheretos and whatfors, let alone how to do it. No matter what.

"In the City" – dream come true or nightmare galore? Healthy? Or not? Fulfilling? And are there solutions? "In the City" – first single of Yusuf Sahili's new album release "Let's Do That"

lyrics

I grew up in the country where the sky was wide.
I moved into the city and my life got hard.

Now I’m running through the city
horizon’s so far away.
away
away
away
so far away

I came in from the country where the nights are quiet.
Now I’m living in the city where the lights are bright

lights flashing bright
I can’t see the sky
all building’s so high
they cover my mind

Now I’m running through the city
horizon’s so far away.
away
away
away
so far away

Roaming through the country where there’s no one round

lights flashing bright
I can’t see the sky
all building’s so high
they cover my mind

lights flashing bright
I can’t see the sky
all building’s so high
they cover my lies
