Tani is grateful to God for giving him the opportunity to be able to play music, to enjoy life and to have a good life.


Thank you very much!

Him, the old Jango (spirit) is making noise

Some people know about today, but not about tomorrow

Nick, play bass for me!

The world is been created so long ago

Son of the world or Tani is a son of the world

Humanity, human kind, let’s be humble!

We shall know our time is much better than that of the past

Thank you, God, because you can do so many things

When I lay down and think, I realize how lucky I am

Hey, let’s play the doundoun, the Bambara doundouni

Tani plays the Ngoni, the Bambara Ngoni

Let’s have a party

In the end, we will never know all about the world

This is why we should enjoy our time.
