Soolaimon (African Trilogy II) by Neil Diamond

Album: Taproot ManuscriptReleased: 1970Charted:
30
  • An early venture into World Music, this was part of a suite of songs known as "The African Trilogy." Diamond studied African culture at the Kenyon Mission, the United Nations and the African Studies department at UCLA. "Soolaimon" can mean "hello," "welcome," "good-bye" and "peace be with you."
  • The African Trilogy was arranged by the Jazz musician Marty Paich.
  • This was often a highlight of Diamond's live shows. He sometimes used it to open his concerts. (thanks to David Wild, author of He Is...I Say: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Neil Diamond, for all above)
