What good is it to have
Freemen who sleep in this world of suffering

Wake up, my people
Straighten up, my people

A long road awaits you

Freemen suffering shows us that times have changed

Overall Meaning

These lyrics from Bombino's song "Imuhar" speak to the plight of the Tuareg people, a nomadic tribe from West Africa who have faced numerous struggles and persecution over the years. The opening lines ask the question, "What good is it to have freemen who sleep in this world of suffering?" This implies that the Tuareg people may be technically free but are still subject to suffering and hardship in their daily lives.


The next lines urge the Tuareg people to wake up and face the difficulties of their current situation. This could refer to a range of issues, from political oppression to environmental challenges, but the message is clear: the Tuareg people must confront these obstacles if they want to move forward and create a better future for themselves. The final line speaks to the idea that the road ahead will be long and difficult, but that the Tuareg people have the strength to persevere.


Overall, these lyrics offer a powerful call to action for the Tuareg people and, more broadly, for anyone who is facing adversity in their lives. They urge us to wake up, confront the challenges in our path, and work towards a brighter future.

Music is so transcendent, it’s a universal language. I don’t need to understand a word Bombino is saying to feel the beauty of the human experience he is sharing with the world. Thank you for your music Bombino, it is truly your gift to the world.
