İngilizce translation

Ijexá

Sons of Gandhi, badauê1
Ylê ayiê,malê debalê,otum obá1
There's a mystery
That beats in the heart
The strength of a song
That has the gift of enchanting
 
There's a mystery
That beats in the heart
The strength of a song
That has the gift of enchanting
 
It's glow seems like
A shed sun
A silver sky
A sea of stars
 
Reveals the weightlessness
Of a suffering people
Of rare beauty
That lives singing
Profound greatness
 
It's richness
Comes from the past
From the congado2
I am sure
 
Daughters of Gandhi
Eh great people
Ojuladê,katendê,babá obá1
Grandchildren of Gandhi
People of Zambi
Brings to you
A new sound: Ijexá1
