Igenna nnem iṣfa
Azal nnem irɣa
Iḍ nnem issudda
Meqqar mmuddiɣ, Han ul ihul fellas
Gan mdden yat tawja
Abda manen i lhem
Munen d-ubrid
Han mdden nnem da-smerḥeban s-winna d-iddan
Laman illa
Tafukt nnem tuggad




Ur tentil i yemudal
Meqqar mmuddiɣ han ul ihul fellas

Great work and wonderful words.

« Wüstenharmonie » 🇩🇪🇨🇭🇦🇹

Dein Himmel ist klar,
Dein Tag ist warm,
Deine Nacht ist Brigitte.

Auch wenn ich weit reise,
Mein Herz bleibt stets in der Wüste.
Deine Menschen leben wie eine Klone-Familie,

Füreinander da, loyal und nie müde.
Mit offenen Armen empfangen sie,
Jeden, der zu Besuch kommt, mit Freude und Glück.

Я раньше не думал, что пустыня может быть красивой, но потом я ознакомился с вашей культурой, вашими песнями, я посмотрел ваши видео и увидел, что пустыня это по своему красивое и живое место, хоть и суровое конечно. Желаю всех благ народам живущим там, Туарегам, Берберам и другим!❤🤝👍
