Hello there.

My name is Nyaboe Makiya. Welcome to my blog/podcast, Songs We like, where we talk about music to and we hear from all kinds of people about the music that carries them through their lives.

Hardly anything moves people as universally as music does. We describe the music we collect as “ours” because we feel connected to the work. For most of us, “our music” is very much a representation of who we are. This show and blog, is an exploration of what goes into making music “ours”…the sick basslines, the gorgeous strings, the harmonies and adlibs,the lyrics that describe exactly how we feel…or exactly how we want to feel …basically whatever it is that makes us connect with different pieces of music is what we are trying to identify and break down.

Every month, I host a music enthusiast and “raid” their music collection as they tell me the stories behind each of their favourite musical compositions.

Essentially we get to know more about the person through the music and vice versa.

I will also share my daily music blog, music news, album reviews, as well as downloadable DJ mixes for your enjoyment.

Check out my old blog http://www.soundscribe.blogspot.com for more pieces on music I like and please feel free to share yours in the comment section. Let’s talk!

Thanks for visting! 🙂
