Song Description

This song was inspired while traveling to Paris. Its amazing what creativity is sparked on a ten hour flight.

Story Behind the Song

Upon arriving back to the states, we gave the track to Chet Samuel who immediately felt the vibe and came up with the lyrics that would salute the great artists of Mama Africa.

Lyrics

(Spanish)

coro:
Mamma Africa
viva la musica, oh oh

un omenaje, a mi mama querida
te llevo por dentro, donde quiera que vaya
por tu ritmo y tambien tu melodia
nosotros tus hijos te damos las gracias
sin ti, no se, ni que yo haria
sin ti, no se ni como yo viviria

Mama Africa eres mi inspiracion
Te amo mama eres mi pasion

coro:
Mamma Africa
viva la musica, oh oh

quiero un momento
para mensionar
veteramos a tu musica como Baba Mal

Fela Kuti el sensacional
Mirian Makeba, Ay mama

quiero darte las gracias mama
por toda lo que me has dado, mama
por Rafael Cortijo, mama
y sonero mayor, Ismael Rivera

por todos los hijos
todos,
todo lo que tu me has dado
mama africa

no soy vidente Rey
Sony Ade

ay mama mama..

no soy vidente,

de la buena salsa y la rumba y el reggae
el calipso y el jazz

siburi saburi saburi...

coro:
africano, que soy un africano

(English)

I'm paying homage to my beloved mama
I carry her with me everywhere that I go
For your rhythm and your melody
We, your sons ,we thank you
Without you, I don't know what I'd do
Without you, I don't know how I'd live
Mama Africa, you are my Inspiration
Mama Africa, you are my passion

I want to take a moment to mention
veterans in your music like Baba Maal,
the sensational Fela Kuti, Miriam Makeba, ay! Mama
I want to thank you Mama, for all that you have given, Mama
For Rafael Cortijo Mama
And EL SONERO MAYOR: ISMAEL RIVERA
