Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Imarhan's song "Tumast" are sung in the Tamasheq language and are reflective of the band's Tuareg heritage. The song begins with the repeated phrase "Erea Kimmou Takma Takmit, Ehafaouat Midan Aglat" which roughly translates to "I see a trace and I follow it, in the middle of the desert." This sets the stage for the rest of the lyrics, which speak of the struggles and hardships of the Tuareg people in their daily lives.


The following verse, "Ayetmanin Mafal Nalhit, Ittous Eyan Ghared Nawyeet," refers to the lack of resources and economic opportunities available to the Tuareg people, as well as their displacement from their ancestral lands. The line "Tarti Tomast Ghared Talhit, Takel Tikilt As Dirhanit," translates to "the road is long and I'm tired, carrying this heavy load." This line reflects the weariness and fatigue felt by the Tuareg people as they continue to fight for basic human rights and recognition.


Overall, "Tumast" is a poignant and deeply meaningful song that sheds light on the struggles and resilience of the Tuareg people. The lyrics convey a sense of longing, struggle, and a persevering spirit that is inherent to the Tuareg culture.
