Order Samba Touré's album 'Albala' here: https://glitterbeat.bandcamp.com/albu...

Recorded at Studio Mali in Bamako, in the autumn of 2012, Samba is joined by his regular band members Djimé Sissoko (n'goni ) and Madou Sanogo (congas, djembe) and guests such as the legendary, master of the soku (a one-stringed violin) Zoumana Tereta and the fast-rising Malian neo-traditional singer Aminata Wassidje Traore. Additionally, Hugo Race (The Bad Seeds, Dirtmusic, Fatalists) contributes an array of subtle atmospherics on guitar and keyboards.


Translated lyrics:

Be Ki Don (Everybody Dance)
Song of celebration. When an artist enters a court or a village, the people gather to sing and dance.

Men know that Samba arrives
Women know that Samba arrives
Children know that Samba arrives
Everyone welcomes Samba Touré.

Why do you not talk together?
Brothers and sisters, couples, talk to each other
Not just on happy days
Life lasts only a few days, be united.

Men know that Samba arrives
Women know that Samba arrives
Children know that Samba arrives
Everyone welcomes Samba Touré.
