a beautiful prayer from somewhere in Africa.
I don't know anything about it or what it means!
I just read the words and this melody came to me.

*Live recording with the wonderful sitar player Leonardo Har Prakash in Mexico. For me it is a prayer to mother earth.
If anyone knows the meaning, please tell me!


O mileko, O mileko

Acatumbale acatumbale belele belele
Bele tzimi bele tzimi tzimimi tzimimi
Atzimi tsaya atzimi tzaya tsayaya tsayaya
Tzaya butu tzaya butu bututu bututu
Abutu gnda abutu gnda gndang gndanga
Kunda leli kunda leli alelila alelila
Aleli manga aleli manga manganga manganga
U manganga manganga U

Mother earth and the human heart are the bread and butter of this artist’s intention and you can taste it in every song.
