Amanke Dionti can be translated to “She is Not Your Slave.” It addresses one of the least known but still very troubling societal issues facing the Senegalese people. Cissoko’s lyrics urge respect for the thousands of young women who are sent by their impoverished families in the remote areas to serve as maids for more affluent urban families. These young women hope to work in exchange for food, shelter, education and more money, but instead many are exploited and treated as nothing more than slaves.
Amanke Dionti was recorded in Bon Secours, a historic all wooden church in Paris that dates back to the mid-nineteenth century.
But you really don’t need to understand the lyrics to feel the beauty and soulfulness of the song.
