For the song, there is Mamady Keita's CD Balandugu Kan (disk 1, track 10?)
Fankafo, fankani fo e
ne ta de bene cinu-o
(don't trust me on the word breaks, I'm a non-malinke speaker)
If I remember correctly, the translation goes something like:
Play the strength (play strongly) [fank - afo: fank = strong; afo = play]
Then there's something about "if things don't go well today, they will go better tomorrow" having to do with flirting
Then there is something about "hate divorcing her husband"?? anyone help me out here?
Ok, gotta get back to work.
@vink, (about being 40) thanks, I'm told that after the first few day's it's not so bad...
(about commuting) I commuted 1 hour each way for about a year to work with Moussa Traore, well worth the commute, but it does reach a point sometimes. At the time I think I stopped when gas prices reached $4 a gallon, then never got back into it...
