Neil Diamond – “Soolaimon” Live
Neil Diamond Is Undeniably The Greatest Showman Of All Time
“Soolaimón” is one of Neil’s most unforgettable tracks. It has stood the test of time and still continues to be among his greatest hits. It was a staple in most of his concerts or any live performance. In fact, he would often sing it for the opening.
An early venture into World Music, this was part of a suite of songs known as “The African Trilogy.” Diamond studied African culture at the Kenyon Mission, the United Nations and the African Studies department at UCLA. “Soolaimon” can mean “hello,” “welcome,” “good-bye” and “peace be with you.”
