    Default Wassiye by Habib Koite & Bamamda - Ma Ya CD

    Wassiye Wassiye ne la diya souro
    Wassiye den kourani dine ma souro
    Den kourani yoro be kera kera wassiye
    Den muso ni yoro be kera kera wassiye

    Wassiye ne la diya koundu souro wassiye yassiya gnogon yere
    Dine ma souro

    Den musoni yorobe kera kera kon muso
    Den kourani yorobe kera iko wassala

    A genekisse ye wassi taye
    A dagola fana ye wassi taye
    A tchie kisse ye wassi taye
    A boto kala fanaye wassi taye

    I ya ye i ye wassiye
    Yassi yene la diya
    Iyaye iyaye wassive moussoye

    English translation:
    For all the happy fathers, you have just had a daughter who looks very much like your wife. You are blessed now with two wives at home.

    Does anyone have the lyrics to Saramaya? A translation would be cool too, but less important. Thanks!

    Hi Raggamonkey:

    It looks like that is on his Foly! Live Around the World CD only. I don't have that one unfortunately, but now that you've alerted me to that, I may purchase it :-)
    I'll post the lyrics if so.

    Take care,

    Hi missFeudor,

    I have Foly! Live Around the World, but the booklet does not contain lyrics. Saramaya is also on his Ma Ya album, but I don't have that one and also don't know if it has lyrics. But I do appreciate your idea!

    I strongly recommend Foly! Live Around the World, it is fantastic!

    Thanks!!

    Hi Raggamonkey:

    Thanks for the recommendation on Foly! I will definitely have to get that.

    Ah! I didn't see it on Ma Ya. It is song #6 - Saramaya. Here are the lyrics and translation:

    English:
    How charming are the Malian women
    especially the days of celebration
    when you can see them dressed in their most beautiful boubou
    and wearing their golden jewelry
    this atmosphere of celebration is warmed up by the songs of the griottes
    and the rythym of the djembre

    Malian woman, charming woman
    Thank you for being the pillar of the family,
    of the children's education
    and the perpetuation of our customs.

    Woula sera denkoundi kene lou fourata
    Lassara sera kogno sinsin na lou yi son
    Mali mousso lou bora benila dorokiba bi yangala
    I tama tchogo deyi diya gne (a tamato)
    kini bolo ba tchie
    Gorobone lou bora (a tamato)
    Numan bolo be balance
    Ila woussoulan n'kara souma deyen ta
    Kamankun be yongo yongo
    Bamako diriyanke lou bora (a tamato)
    dorokiba doni be fofo ka yanga
    ka yanga kan ga doro kiba yanga
    ka yanga kan ga saramaya yanga
    Solyo djime iye fan fan fan
    Djalilou diansara
    Fina lou diansara

    Garankelou diansara
    N'ga ntena dorokiba singala
    Bi muso massiri ye singala
    Kele kela ma n'ga dorokiba te singala
    Bi tchienga te singala
    Mouna figui ma n'ga dorokiba te singala a te farala
    Bi sarama ya ye singala
    An! An! Yere fo kuma te n'go ngne ga dorokiba san sanou moure
    An! An! Yere ma yirate n'go nge ga dorokiba brode n'ba yanga

    Hello guys ... a lot of thanks to missFeudor for posting such nice lyrics of such amazing artist

    here's another lyrics. song: Batoumanbé, Album : Album: Baro

    unfortunately, I don't know anything about its meanings except of that Batoumanbé is a name of a woman.

    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    Ma bien aimée sirène
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    Gné bolo da sï kan, Sin na diyatê
    Sin na diyatê, Si tigi la diya do
    Kan bolo da Kanna, Kanna diyatê
    Kanna diyatê, Kan Tigui la diya dôn
    Je passe mon bras autour de ton cou parce que j'aime être avec toi
    ou, ou , ou, ou
    Gné bolo da bolo kan bolo la diyatê
    Bolo tigui la diya dôn
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    (Instrumental balafon)
    Kawa gnon fai Segou, Sirala diyaté
    Segou diyaté I fait tama le diya dôn
    Ka gnognai kôdala dji la diyatê
    Dji la diyatê I fait Baro de diyadon
    ou, ou, ou, ou
    Kan bein ponni kan banconi ponni kan
    Ponni diyaté I yé ile diyadôn
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    (Instrumental balafon)
    ou, ou, ou, ou
    Péré pé pé (x 4)
    (Instrumental balafon)
    ou, ou, ou, ou
    (Instrumental balafon)
    Péré pé pé (x4)
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé
    A Batoumanbé wï koro Batoumanbé

    Hi Raggamonkey:

    You're welcome. Glad to help fellow Habib fans. He is just so awesome.

    It's great fun to sing along! Here is a link to the Bambara language which I've found helpful in learning the vowels and some short phrases.

    Take care,

    Hi El~Egipcio:

    Thanks for the link to the Batoumanbe lyrics. It's one of my favorites.

    Here is the English translation from the Baro CD liner notes.

    Batoumanbe (name of a woman from the Bozo fishing tribe)
    Two people from different worlds discover an impossible love
    The young Bozo fisherman and the siren of the river.
    They could neither be seen together, nor marry.
    From their idyll, a proverb has grown.
    "Not all love ends in marriage"
    But love remains strong.
    The fisherman said: "When I touch your breasts, it is not desire.
    It is out of love for the owner of the breasts.
    If I put my hand around your neck, it is not from the desire to touch your neck,
    but for the love that I feel for the neck's owner.
    My dear Boutmanbe, not all love ends in marriage"
