Publicidade

Herman Poole Blount ou Le Sony'r Ra - foi um compositor de jazz, bandleader, pianista, poeta e filósofo conhecido por sua "filosofia cósmica", composições musicais e performances.

Ele ficou conhecido por diversos nomes ao longo de sua carreira, incluindo Le Sonra e Sonny Lee e negou sua conexão com seu nome de nascimento "Esta é uma pessoa imaginária, nunca existiu... Outro nome que eu use do que Ra é um pseudônimo". Ele abandonou seu nome de nascença e adotou o nome e a personalidade de Sun Ra . Alegando ser o "Anjo da Raça" e não da Terra, mas de Saturno, Sun Ra desenvolveu uma personalidade complexa de filosofias "cósmicas" e poesia lírica que o fizeram um pioneiro no afrofuturismo que ele pregava a "consciência" e a paz sobre todos.

„Sometimes in the ignorance
I feel the meaning“

—  Sun Ra
Context: Sometimes in the ignorance I feel the meaning Invincible invisible wisdom, And I commune with intuitive instinct With the force that made life be And since it made life be It is greater than life And since it let extinction be It is greater than extinction.

„I'm not into division. I'm into coordination, discipline and tradition.“

—  Sun Ra
Context: People have a lot more of the unknown than the known in their minds. The unknown is great; it's like the darkness. Nobody made that. It just happens. Light and all that — someone made that; it's written that they did. But nobody made the darkness. My music is about dark tradition. Dark tradition means a lot more about than black tradition. There's a lot of division in what they call black. I'm not into division. I'm into coordination, discipline and tradition. As quoted in "Space is still the place" by W. Kim Heron in Metro Times (6 June 2007) http://www.metrotimes.com/editorial/story.asp?id=10582

„I probably do what I'm controlled to do. Something … made all this: some Impossibility without a name. That's what the world is controlled by: an Impossibility.“

—  Sun Ra
Context: I probably do what I'm controlled to do. Something … made all this: some Impossibility without a name. That's what the world is controlled by: an Impossibility. It's controlled by someone they call "God" who never had a beginning and naturally had no end. And in a sense He doesn't exist, because of the standards of reality, because everybody knows something can't just happen — but if there is a God, that's what happened; just happened to be, and without ever having not been — they got to face that. Interview with Jennifer Rycenga (2 November 1988)
