The music near the end of our memorial tribute to Wangari Maathai (“Planting the Future”) struck a chord with our listeners this week. We received a number of emails wanting to know the name of the track and the album played right before the credits (I had no idea people actually listened to them! *grin*). So here it is: Peter Gabriel and Youssou N’Dour performing “Shaking the Tree.”

Great choice. One of my favorites. A "deep cut" you might say. It was only released as a bonus track on a greatest hits album "Sixteen Golden Greats"

What a great sound! It is so right for this occasion. I am sure Wangari Maathai was smiling listening to this song on the way crossing that river between this life and the next.

great choice of sound. It is one of the my favorite music...
