The Power of Love

A Masai in full reglia and ear pods, singing I Am Your Lady.  Off key.  In this 8-minute film, we meet three Kenyans who variously describe Celine Dion's music as soothing, stress-relieving and inspiring in their search for a wife.

Having seen some traditional Masai dancing while in Tanzania, I couldn't help wondering at the artistic distance between their energetic straight-up-and-down jumping and the romantic ballads of Dion.  Hmmm.

If you get a chance to see Torontonian Joyce Wong's The Power of Love, take it; you'll enjoy this 8 minutes.
