When asked by the explorers from Europe, where did they come from, the Dogon politely pointed to the Sirius Nebula Star system. At that point the Europeans had no way of seeing it or knowing about it. A few hundred years it was discovered. Like his Dogon kin, Onli is often hiding in plain sight. Exhibiting, publishing, and being reviewed while other look past the power and impact of all things Rhythmistic.
