[embed width="560"][/embed]


Over a decade ago, Nelson Mandela (affectionately called "Madiba" by millions of people) appeared on stage with South African singer/songwriter, Johnny Clegg, during his live performance of "Asimbonanga." At 4:00 mins into the video, Mandela tells the crowd: "It is music and dancing that makes me at peace with the world and at peace with myself" before he hands the microphone back to Clegg and resumes his iconic "Madiba Dance" (a dance in which he slowly throws his elbows around in a way that only Madiba can).

No matter his age, Mandela remains as timeless as the ideas of peace that he speaks. His words are no less true now than they were then - music and dancing makes us at peace with the world and with ourselves. Happy 93rd Birthday Nelson Mandela!
