Tameyawt

Tamadroyt tamayawt edey nes wan tallaq
Eqqal tafarawt adagh nes tassalat
Nak akal in Timyawin timtaghen tedjedawin
Nak akal in Afara d Assamalmal d Assawa
Addawanagh Tarawant neghres fell as tadawalt
Ad andowagh tegherit har as tissel Tessalit

Just saw a Tinariwen CD at the Record Exchange but was so cold from being in the snow I couldn't think straight and didn't buy it. . . but I remembered the name from long ago. Shoulda bought that CD!

How I miss Tameyawt
His walls are baked of earth
His village has turned green again
And his mountain boulders are smooth and long
My homeland is Timyawin
Timetren to the opposite mountain slope
My country is Afara
And the wells at Assamalmal and Assawa
I’ll climb the mountain of Tarawant
And sacrifice a beautiful young goat up there
I’ll utter a joyful cry that will be heard
All the way to Tessalit.

Amazing music .. Mali needs all the support that the world can provide it... The government there is systematically suppressing such beautiful music - in the name of, you guessed it, conservatism and religion ... truly tragic ...
