lyrics

Some men say that girls do not need to read,
Or go to school, they’re born to breed.
Some men burn the books in Timbuktu,
But in the end burn people too.

The water’s rising,
People shouting
To be free.

Wind is howling,
People screaming
(to be ) free.

Some men cut the music-makers down,
And Bamako is a silent town.
Some men say their faith is a higher law,
And kill and rob, for a merciful god.

The water’s rising,
People shouting,
Wind is howling,
People screaming…

Oh Mali, Oh Mali,
La musique ets la paix.
Oh Mali, Oh Mali,
Le memoire de société.

Does Tomani Diabaté play the devils music?
Does Vieux Farka Touré play the devils music?
Does Fatoumata Diarawa play the devils music?
Does Bassekou Kouyaté play the devils music?
Does Abdullah Ag Limida play the devils music?
Do Amadou and Miriam play the devils music?

Oh Mali, Oh Mali,
La musique ets la paix,
Oh Mali, Oh Mali,
Le memoire de société,
Oh Mali, Oh Mali,
La musique est la paix,
Oh Mali, Oh Mali
Son histoire, son couer et son verité
