Yema Samba – English

YEMA SAMBA

 

To the tide that brings in Africa

make me sing,

make me dream

And make my body sweat

 

 

Feel the vibration of this woman

dancing

moving

swaying back and forth

 

Since a child, a mistic girl

From the samba circle

Percussion, kimbanda

A day dreamer

 

She has a sensual swing

Hot

She’s no toy

Confronting

 

The Sea, woman, mother of all races

Yemanja, the mother, she’s Africa!

 

Yema Samba

Yema Saba

Odoya, my mother!

uhum
