This afternoon I heard Nimo from Empty Hands Music sing. I loved his songs and was intrigued by him so I checked him out at the first opportunity. This is what I found:
From an Ivy League education to Wall street to fame and fortune as a MTV Rap star, at some point along Nimo’s journey he realized that we was walking a path of suffering and that the only path to light was through selfless service to others and his own internal purification. For the past 5 and half years Nimo has been serving and working with the underprivileged communities in the Gandhi Ashram in India.
Nimo chose the title ‘Empty Hands’, because of the profound wisdom we all can gain when we understand this deeper truth: that we arrive on this planet empty handed and we will all soon leave empty handed. So then, how and in what spirit do we want to spend the time in between?
Next, I checked YouTube and found a video that has three different parts. In the first part he gives an overview of the Empty Hands Pilgrimage. The last minutes of that part includes some of his song Planting Seeds. In the second part he sings Grateful and the third is Being Kind. I was so moved by what I saw and heard that I sobbed. I hope the video touches your heart as well.
Nimo is offering his album of ten songs for free download. You can download them here.
