Robin Aisha LandsongCalled Back by the Song of an African Tribal Woman

When I was eight years old I was abducted from the US and taken to Africa. It was 1977. We landed in Rhodesia during the Bush War. I was soon separated from the man who kidnapped me. I spent the night alone in the bush, then made my way to a rural village. The people of this tribe took me in, and cared for me as one of their own. They taught me how to sing their traditional songs. One woman adopted me as her own. In a singing ceremony I was given the name Aisha (which translates as “she is life”). Days later, guerrilla soldiers came near the village and shot me. I began to die of blood loss and shock. I crossed over into death and met five beings who led me through my confusion to acceptance. During my journey I looked back and saw my Mama holding my body and wailing. Though I treasured her, I journeyed onward through veils that separated me from the living. I began to hear a song that made me pause in my journey. Mama’s wailing had turned into her Medicine Singing that was so clear I heard her through the veils. Her calling song reminded me of my purpose. I decided to return so I could do my purpose which is to offer Medicine Singing to people. I will be telling my story using my art about my death experience, and finishing with Singing Medicine that I do with my husband, John Utter.
