Hello forum members.There is this song called Mombasa by a Kenyan band by the name Safari sound band.It sings about
the beauty of Mombasa but i can't make up most of the words.I will appreciate if someone could kindly assist me with translating it.

Thank you in advance!

You say it's German? I found the video on YT, but it currently doesn't play properly on my computer. I'll give it a listen tomorrow.

I've listened to it and It is definitely not German...

Hi Jule. Thank you for the response. The one i am refering to is indeed in German.With my limited understanding of the language,I can tell a few words from the song such as "eine gute stadt","die heisse sonne","ich liebe dich","vergesse ich nie" among other words.There may be more than one song (possibly) with the same title but this one is definately in German.it's in their album featuring Jambo Jambo, Karibuni Kenya among others.

Dear Sciera. Thank you for your comment.Still new on here and i really apreciate your input.I also saw the video but I couldn't play it either and i think the link is probably broken.The this song is indeed in German. Safari Sound Band — The Best of African Songs, 2005 will take you straight to the track list.Singing about "blauer Himmel, die Weisse sand...ich liebe dich" something like that.Such a beautiful song but i just wish i could know the exact words.Thank you very much in advance

Found it on Deezer now.

Yes, it's in German, but sung by a non-native, so the pronunciation is a bit strange. Nevertheless well enough understandable, here are the lyrics: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/safari-sound-band-mombasa-lyrics.html
