...def. of sankofa: learning from one's past and applying it to one's future in order to create unity.

sankofamusic is just that; musical elements from hip-hop's past applied to today's version of true hip-hop, in order to create a unity in the music, thus moving away from hip-hop's commercialization and demonization. sort of sparks a bit of concentration and focused contimplation. not just locally grown but something of the whole nation. not agitation, but more like fertilization of young minds faced with a lack of answers for their musical starvation...all for what? hip-hop's salvation!
