Hola proZianos,

Ayer vi 'Todo sobre mi madre' por enésima vez y esta vez quiero sacarme el clavo sobre la canción Tajabone. Encontré la letra en el idioma original (creo que es senegalés) pero nunca he podido encontrarla traducida. ¿Sabe alguien lo que significa?

Tajabone

Mida, tajabone beni tajabone (2x)
Habdu buhu yamba, nyari malaïka

* Rhawe hekiko darum siserum
momu muhu dida neka mukedinga
momu muhu dida neka muhonga (2x)

Tajabone beni tajabone (2x)
Wele (4x)
Abdu nyamba ...wele
Nyari malaïka ...wele
Sika ule yowe ...wele
Dari siserum ... wele
munina ...wele
eka muninga...wele
munina ...wele
eka muhola...wele
ah ah ah ...

Hola:

Uno de mis amigos es de Senegal, ya le pregunto... pero que sepas que no habla "senegalés", sino Wolof.

Saludos,

Mar

Justo hoy me dijeron que el idioma que más se habla en Senegal es el Wolof. Muchas gracias.

De otro foro:

I recently read that Tajabone, which is the name of the song, is in Wolof, the language spoken in Senegal.
It's about a muslim tradition. Tajabone is collecting candy, food or money for children. This tradition is also a thanksgiving for muslims.

The translation (or an approximation) is:

tajabone we're going to tajabone

Abdou Jabar he's an angel coming from the skies to your soul

he's going to ask you "did you pray?"

he's going to ask you "did you fast?"

he is coming to your soul

he's going to ask you "did you pray?" "did you fast?"
