Tani sings this song for people after a hard day’s work.


Let’s go to the river, let’s go to the mountains

Let’s go to the top of the mountain.

Yeah, the old Pilon (spirit) is talking.

Yeah, the bird (vulture) that does not care about dead animals but live ones.

Yeah the world, let’s go conquer the world, the free world.

In this world, people are not the same regarding their character or their strength.

Come and play with me in Wassoulou to the sounds of the drum and the Kamale Ngoni.
