5th April 2018: Youssou N’Dour – Birima

Artist: Youssou N’Dour
Title: Birima
Language: Wolof

A beautiful song praising a 19th-century king from Senegal. Apparently, he was very reserved (he spoke to his people once a year) and placed great importance on keeping one’s word. A political rarity, and worth singing about!

Lyrics in English here. I could listen to Youssou N’Dour sing all day, he has the most amazing voice! This song has a really uplifting feel to it.
