English French Tamasheq. EMAJER I followed their tracks, drowned out by the rain, Disorientated, without points of reference In space or time, My camel bogged-down, knee-deep Overcome with regret, Like Cry Out - Leatherwolf - Leatherwolf mother-camel pining for its young. Who could love this world?
The use of my sword is mindful. Is this world alive or dead? If it exists: what shape is it? My heart is lost and cannot find itself in it. This woman I was inclining to, said to me, Just as I was half-sitting half-crouching: Be off with you; What do you want at this hour? Your quest is pretty futile! I danced with a partridge, light brown of colour. She flew off thinking I would never be able to look again. Her hair is as black as her eyebrows. Friends, companions, hear my truth And my conviction These banishments that befall us Bring no joy, neither to my heart Nor to that of the youth.
You suffer the bitterness of that oppression, Which annihilated the old folk On whom you counted, And tortures the soul of the heart That knows no hatred. You never learn a thing You never impart a thing. You incubate hatred all the while. My brothers, why all the misunderstanding In this arid desert strewn with dead trees.
The closer you get, the further away it goes. You have an arcane history, Of whose existence the world is aware. You can never hope to achieve anything Without constant commitment. The tears of the children and elders Make my heart lament. The tears of the old with no animal wealth Who transport Koud Edhaz Emin (Even If I Seem To Smile) - Tinariwen - Emmaar children about with them, Burn my heart.
They carry them patiently, Waiting for a better tomorrow, Looking for water in wells, That are both deep and dry.
I donned Alacho, my most beautiful indigo turban, And my two boubou robes. I replaced the bolt of my padlock.
They made me feel happy, And I arrived at the camp above Timadjlalen. Any peace Koud Edhaz Emin (Even If I Seem To Smile) - Tinariwen - Emmaar by force is bound to fail And give way to hatred. My people, where is that self-confidence Made of dignity and beauty of spirit That our ancestors bequeathed to us? I love him and I love those he loves, into the life beyond. I pine for those handsome and brave wearers of double turbans!
When Groove Armada - House With Me EP glimpse him dressed in his beautiful robes Smelling of a mixture of perfumes… His headdress crested, giving him the air of gazelles That race through dunes strewn with desert gourds. Opinions battle each other And I no longer believe in unity. I will only believe in it again if Those opinions serve a common ideal: That of the people from which they emanate.
That world out there is more advanced And more powerful than we are, Because it awoke before we did. Now we will awake ourselves. Iswat is poetry chanted over music. Arhegh Danagh.
