Al-Nubatiyya ‎– Chants Et Tambours de Nubie


Dolgidang ayy naafiradam daasci (I was hiding my love in my heart)
Ikka naaraji ayan aa kouddoumana (My heart will not rest until I see you)
Waida kirai, ayga ouwwo kirai (O, you who are lonesome)
Ya salaam yaa wazzi yaa taayer (O swans flying)
Salaam lamaana, noarin amaana (Peace and quiet are gifts from God)
Rhythmical variations on the târ
Ya jemeel sillanngi? (O, beautiful girl, where are you going?)
Walla fouraagin saaba (Your departure will certainly be distressing)
Mann koudoud toa yaa naas? (O young girl, is there anyone to advise you?)
Tello menna? (Where have they gone?)
