African and Irish musicians came together to mark Obama's imminent visit to Ireland and thought about the great hope he gave to people around the world when he first came to office. They wondered what messages of hope he had for Ireland today and what messages we have for him. The result was this song, Tig Linn- Yes We Can. The lyrics in Irish and Yoruba encourage him to be aware and not to lose that vision. 'Bí aire. Ná chiall an fís'
