Kasse Mady sings in Bambara, the first language of many Malians. Here's a translation of his lyrics:
People listen to me, black people, white people, Africans, Europeans, children and adults, listen to what I am saying!
What I’m saying is for the young people to hear us, to know that the Kings and Emperors who passed away before us did well.
They were just human beings, but they worked hard and did well so we should be doing the same.
Let's be proud of ourselves, get to know yourself and you will get to know someone else.
Oh world, all the world, Africans and Europeans, let's be together.
This is the best thing that could happen. Let's help each other, this is the only way we can succeed.
