lyrics

Speak! Speak!
Never be afraid to speak
Speak! Speak!
We’ve all got to speak our minds
Speak! Speak!
The world wants to hear your voice
Speak! Speak!
Never be afraid to speak

Oh mother Africa has to speak her mind
The storyteller keeps the beauty of Senegal alive
Put your hands on the Kora and make it sweat
Put your hands on the Balafon and make it sweat

Can you see?
the Female storyteller
the Male storyteller
Can you see?

The ambiance is here
The ambiance is here
The ambiance is here
The ambiance is here

Your word is positive
Make your words positive
We are the children of Dialy
We come from Bakary Cissoko

Oh mother Africa has to speak her mind
Don’t be afraid to speak your mind
The storyteller keeps the beauty of Senegal alive
