You might be surprised to know what aspects of your traditions and family you hold most dear. It’s not always the blatantly obvious things, but often it’s the more subtle ones that we keep close to our hearts. Our traditions and family are such an important part of our lives, and they shape who we are.
Paul Spring’s sanguine tune, Queen Goma, illustrates the ways in which tradition and family play a unique role in our lives. The lyrics contain a lot of poetic detail and are beautifully expressed, making their effect even more powerful.
As you listen, you’ll notice that the production of this song is fairly unique, with elements of bubbling and tropical guitars. This is due to the fact that Spring was trying to sonically capture the feeling of beating the first boss of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with his brother when he was 10. Spring’s voice is instantly recognizable and unique, and it’s a pleasure to listen to him sing.
