Overall Meaning

The song Djanfa by Amadou & Mariam has a deeply emotional and introspective tone that relates to the theme of love and loss. The chorus "Djanfa ma nyin de" translates from Bambara to "I miss you" and is repeated continuously throughout the song. The first line "E kana ne maloya" could be interpreted as a reference to a beautiful and captivating woman who the singer is deeply drawn to. The following lines suggest a longing to be with this person, saying "Ka nono na malo kelema" which means "I want to see your face again."


The lyrics continue with a sense of yearning and a desire to be reunited with the person they miss so deeply. The repetition of "djarabi" reinforces this longing, with the word translating to "my love" or "my darling" in Bambara. The final lines "Layidu ka gelen" reiterate the desire to reunite and be with their love once again.


Overall, the song Djanfa is a heart-wrenching and beautiful tribute to the pain of separation and the power of love.

L'éthique, l'éthique
Ne m'humilie pas mon amour
En continuant sans moi
En me décevant
Pense à la parole donnée
Mon amour, la trahison n'est pas bonne
En continuant sans moi
En me décevant
Pense à la parole donnée
Mon amour, la trahison n'est pas bonne
La trahison entre amoureux est si dure !
La promesse est une chose si forte
L'éthique, l'éthique entre amoureux !



@YierikRequena

elsiviajera la canción esta interpretada en lengua Bambara, el dúo es un matrimonio no vidente del país de Mali, pero sin duda no es obstáculo para mirar dentro de los corazones con canciones tan bellas como esta, que habla de la fidelidad en pareja y lo triste de las traiciones, aquí va la letra:


E kana ne maloya

djanfan ma nyin de

kana ta ka n to

i t´i miiri kuma ka ma

djarabi

djanfan ma nyin de

ka nono na malo kelema

djarabi

djanfan ma nyin de

e kana ne djanfan

djarabi

layidu ka gelen

ka nono na malo kelema

djarabi...





Traducción al español (la traslación la hice de Bambara-frances-español), perdón por los posibles errores:


Ética, la ética 
No humillarme mi amor 
Al continuar sin mí 
Por decepcionarme 
en la palabra dada
Mi amor
 la traición no es bueno 
Al continuar sin mí
 Por decepcionarme 
en la palabra dada
Mi amor
la traición no es bueno 
La traición entre los amantes es tan difícil! 
La promesa es una cosa tan fuerte
 Ética, la ética entre los amantes



por tu amor, por tu amor
todo lo daria
por volverte a ver.


bellisima no :)
