Anthem of Katanga - La Katangaise

Allons, allons, marchons, Katangais valeureux.
Le soleil s’est levé sur le sol des aïeux
Vieille terre ancestrale du ciel aux profondeurs.
Tu revis opulente à l’appel du bonheur.
 
Enfants du Katanga!
Allons, allons, marchons, Katangais valeureux.
Le soleil s’est levé sur le sol des aïeux
Vieille terre ancestrale du ciel aux profondeurs.
Tu revis opulente à l’appel du bonheur.
 
[Refrain:]
Enfants du Katanga
Défendez le jusqu’à la mort
Rendez le fier rendez le fort
Avec vos bras et votre sang
Avec vos dents.
 
Allons, allons, marchons, Katangais valeureux.
L’ennemi destructeur, tel un lion furieux.
Rôde sur nos frontières
Votre valeur guerrière
Maintienne hors du pays la fatale oppression.

Rôde sur nos frontières
Votre valeur guerrière

[Refrain]
 
Allons, allons, marchons, Katangais valeureux.
Notre bannière au vent, symbole pour tous ceux
Que ses riches croisettes
Et sa verte jeunesse
Sa rouge force aussi soulèvent d’allégresse.
 
[Refrain]

The Katangaise

Come, come, march, brave citizens of Katanga.
The sun rose on the ground of your ancestors
From the old homestead of heaven to the depths.
You saw the opulent call of happiness.
 
Children of Katanga!
Come, come, march, brave citizens of Katanga.
The sun rose on the ground of your ancestors
From the old homestead of heaven to the depths.
You saw the opulent call of happiness.
 
[Chorus:]
Children of Katanga,
Defend to the death
With pride and with strength
With your arms and your blood
With your teeth.
 
Come, come, march, brave citizens of Katanga.
The enemy destroys, like a raging lion.
Lurks on our borders
Your warlike valour
Keeps oppression outside our country.
 
Children of Katanga!

The enemy destroys, like a raging lion.
Lurks on our borders
Your warlike valour
Keeps oppression outside our country.
 
[Chorus]
 
Come, come, march, brave citizens of Katanga.
Our banner in the wind, a symbol for all those
The croslets are our riches
And green is our youth
Red is our strength also our joy.
 
[Chorus]
 
Thanks!
