Sekouba Bambino was born in Guine near Mai. He is a member of a griot family. His song's name is Famou.

"His music is popular throughout West Africa, particularly in Guinea, Mali, and other countries where the Bambara and Malinke languages are spoken."

Please listen and confirm language(s). Thanks. Music 2

I absolutely love this. It seems to be Bambara or a dialect of Bambara.

Malinke is closely related to Bambara, so it could be either. [@maluca] knows of a user who speaks Bambara, maybe they could help.

Thank you!!

ADDING: The album liner notes do not transcribe, but rather, translate only a few lines.

The Title is 'I Understand'.

"I grew to understand how women feel by accompanying them as they went about their daily chores. Today they are fighting for the right to be loved. They must stand tall."

One last question. Is it 100% bambara? No French, for example?
