Yamma Jatta 'na sukam enche yet la' which means 'the tribe told me to go home'.
This song tells a story of a girl who is abandoned by her husband. She is then told to go back to her husband by her family and the tribe offer her support saying 'the tribe must always stick together'.
XamXam's first music video 'Yamma Jatta' by the Gambian Jolla tribe 'Gibunket Asukatian' cultural troupe who are based in the village of 'Marakisse.
The video starts with their parting words to us as we headed back to the UK. The rest of the footage show the musicians in the studio, The Gambian outback, live at the Alliance Franco - Gambienne Cultural, the river Gambia. Also there is At home with the Jolla's where they invited us to their compound and put on a great show. The real tribal side of Africa.
