M - Manitoumani (English translation)

English translation

Manitoumani

[Verse 1: -M-, Toumani Diabetes]
I hear in your kora sometimes even your anger
I hear in your kora your beating heart, my brother
Toumani Diabaté
I hear in your kora all the humiliation
To the vertical in the immensity
Toumani Diabaté
 
[Chorus: Fatoumata Diawara]
Manitoumani, Manitoumani, Manitoumani, Manitoumani, Manitoumani
 
[Verse 2: -M-, Toumani Diabetes]
I hear in your kora the child who goes to war
I hear in your kora your beating heart, my brother
Toumani Diabaté
Even if I also hear the storm moving away
Our soothed drunkenness, unlimited life
Toumani Diabaté
Beyond the disasters of our biographies
Above the walls of our false lives
(Ahhhhhh)
 
[Pont: Fatoumata Diawara, Toumani Diabaté]
Manitoumani, Ayé bémbé kadi lé [x2]
Manitoumani
Toumani Diabaté
Toumani yé, Baraka [x3]
(Ahhhhhh)
 
[Outro: -M-, Toumani Diabaté, Fatoumata Diawara]
Beyond the disasters of our biographies
Above the walls of our false lives
(Ahhhhhh)
Manitoumani, Manitoumani
(Ahhhhhhh)
By want to change the world
It's the world that changed him.
Toumani Diabaté
