Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Jklerh achel udwer ehadh
Jklerh achel udwer ehadh
Lerh azaman iglaerh
Lerh azaman iglaerh

Tigila mela tigilat har takanarh am nounou
Anizdjoum djerh atat diktoh ihal falas oulhin

Kay ebedhoun de amarhanak erhik tarhet
Warhak dakhim sel inizdjam ed tid tekted

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the song "Cler Achel" by Tinariwen speak to the continuous cycle of life and the passing of time. The chorus features the repeated lines "Jklerh achel udwer ehadh" and "Lerh azaman iglaerh," which roughly translate to "The cycle of life goes on" and "Time passes endlessly." The verses detail the narrator's observations about life, including the beauty of nature (such as the plants and flowers that grow in the desert) and the struggles faced by the Tuareg people.


Throughout the song, Tinariwen uses their signature blend of traditional Tuareg music and modern rock influences to create a unique sound that reflects both the band's heritage and their contemporary experiences. The song features prominent use of electric guitars and percussion, as well as call-and-response vocals that are typical of Tuareg music.
