"The problem with computers is that there is not enough Africa in them. This
is why I can't use them for very long. Do you know what a nerd is? A 
nerd is a human being without enough Africa in him or her. I know

say, but I think the African connection is so important.
You know why music was the center of our lives for such a long time? 
Because it was a way of allowing Africa in. In 50 years, it might not 
be Africa; it might be Brazil. But I want so desperately for that 
sensibility to flood into these other areas, like computers."
