album lyrics

"N'na" (Mother) the song was written by Sidiki Conde for his mother who took care of him when he first got his disability.

"I know you carried me twice:
Once when I was a baby and again when I could not walk.
Thank you Mother. Mother do not to cry and do not to worry.
I am going to make you happy.
I am not handicapped. Handicapped is in the mind.
I can sing and I can dance."

"Dalina" is a traditional song to remind people who travel far from home not to forget their origins and their homeland.

"People who go adventuring outside their country need to come home and see their family and help them. Their family says 'Come home, don't forget about home." If your country is Mali, you have to come home to Mali. If your country is Senegal, you have to come home to Senegal. If your country is Ivory Coast you have to come home to Ivory Coast. If your country is Guinea you have to come home to Guinea."

"Agfrisse" (National Association of the Republic of Guinea for the Handicapped) the song beckons young people with disabilities and non-disabled young people to join together and become a community at Agfrisse.

"To be comfortable with one self you need your community.
Community has peace, tolerance and love.
This is the message of Agfrisse.
Come join together at Agfrisse."

"Ibrahima Conde" Sidiki wrote this song as a memorial to his son Ibrahima Conde (August 1994 to September 2002)

The language is Arabic and Malinke. Loosely translates:
"Ibrahima, Ibrahima
The snake eating love, the snake eating love
If the snake eats love he must eat me too
If God is eating love I will sing for God because he made me and he made you You see Keba Cissako is dead, Souri Kandia Kouyate is dead, Fode Kasta is dead. My father is dead too. Everyone will be dead one day.

"Kemoko Sano" Song in praise of Sidiki's teacher of traditional Guinean music and dance and his benefactor Kemoko Sano

"Everyone has to look for good luck
If you get good luck you will be happy all your life
Everyone has to look for good luck
If you get good luck you are going to be happy the rest of your life.
Kemoko Sano you are my benefactor
Kemoko Sano you are my benefactor
Conakry OK
I remember you take me on tour to France
You take me to Japan, You take me to Germany
You take me to Belgium, You take me to Italy
You take me to Senegal, You take me to New York,
You take me to Guinea
They follow your benefits and good luck everybody working for you Sano Everybody do your job Sano
Beintou Sano's daddy, Seckou Sano's daddy Amamato Sano's daddy,
Mamady Sano's daddy, Alpha Sano's daddy, Mellissa Sano's daddy
Kemoko Sano, Kemoko Sano"
I sing for God. Allah is great I am happy with everything. I love you forever."

"Damayele" Song calling on everyone to work together

"Chorus: Stop big mouth, your voice is a pain
Stop big mouth, your voice is a pain
Yes I am big mouth, pain voice
Sometime I am here sometime I get up
Early morning rain beat me for you Evening rain beat me for you
But if God wants after tomorrow morning the rain is not going to beat me
because everybody can move on their own
Move Moussa guitar player move
Move Fatou dancer move, Move Terre Roche singer move,
Move Fatima Kouyate singer move. Move Pablo djembe player move
Move Yacouba kora player move,
Move Dalo Bangoura move, Move Deborah Ross move
Move Nimo Camara move, Mamady Djoniba Harlem move, Yamoussa Soulmah move, Balla Ballaphone move, Rick technician move, Sekou kora move, Aboulaye singer move, Jean doun doun move"

"Aboubacar Sidiki" After Sidiki lost his mobility people said he was a ghost and had no family. The song was written by Sidiki to claim his place in his community and his humanity by naming his father and brothers and sisters.

"My father's name is Ibrahima Conde from Woroube
My brother Sekouba's father is Ibrahima Conde from Woroube
(The song goes on to name 23 family members.)
Chorus: (Eh Hey people Sidiki comes out everybody get happy. He is here with his music.)"

"Minimize" Don't minimize people

"Don't minimize disabled people
We can do something
Some group of disabled all in wheelchair
Some is a teacher, some is an adventurer, some are musicians
Don't minimize us
We can do something
God made everyone unique
Some people one foot is cut off But he can do something
Some people two foot cut off But he can do something
Some person he cannot see He can do something
We can something
He can do something
You can do something
Don't minimize disabled people
Everybody can do something"

"Kourri" (Group) Everyone together

"Chorus: Group, group coming together in a community
Group, group coming together in a community
Community has to come together to make a good thing
Young boy group has to think good
One come, together at a sabar ceremony
At a doun doun ceremony everybody has to enjoy
At a marriage ceremony everyone has to enjoy
Mommy we has to get a good thing
Uncle we have to think good thing
Aunt we have to get a good thing
After the ceremony everybody give love together
We love, love, love
Everybody has to give love"

"Dounougna" (World) This song was written soon after Sidiki lost his mobility. It was a way for Sidiki to reach out to those he met while in rehabilitation, embracing all as members of the same community.

"In this world we are many different people. We are fine.
Some people have no eyes. We are fine.
Some people have no ears. We are fine.
Some people have no voice. We are fine.
Some people have no legs. We are fine.
Some people have nothing. Some people have everything.
God helps everyone in the world."

"Djougou-magni" A song warning against the evils of gossip

"Don't be evil - Don't be evil
If you be evil and you talk a good voice in front of people
If I turn back you say bad thing behind me
Don't be evil yourself
Anything you do your life you have to careful yourself
Don't be surprised
Don't be surprised"
