    Notes

    All compositions by Sona Diabaté, except Horro, trad., adapted by Sona Diabaté. All arrangements by Demba Camara.

    Produced by African Music, Frankfurt, with a lot of help from Productions Bolibana, Paris.

    Mixed and recorded directly on 2-track videotape by Günter Gretz in Paris on 13 September 1988.

    This record is dedicated to El Hadj Djeli Fodé Diabaté (the father of Sona, Sayon & Sekou who died 2 October 1988).

    M'boré - the youth of the old days was different from the youth of today: I talk about you, Marie Touré, in your beautiful boubou embroidered with gold...
    Koloman - we, the griots, are not the only ones doing their duties. Women always pounded the millet; men always cultivated the fields; the blacksmith always shaped the iron; the griots always praise the industrious...
    M'boté - happiness is back in our beautiful village: young and old, women and children, let's celebrate! Let's not listen to our enemy, he wont be satisfied anyway...
    Kankele-ti - I will be always following the man who is treating me well, wherever he goes. I just can't sit down here in Guinea without him. This man gives me pleasures I can't tell about. Girls of Guinea, search in all directions for your love...
    Horro - the honesty of a man is reflected in his deeds and in his words, since medieval times griots sing about honest men...
    Nassannaba - Since I met Princess Nassannaba Touré I don't bother anyore to run back and forth. If this lady, who has done so much for me, calls for me, I come for help, whether her call comes from Conakry, Bamako, Abidjan, Dakar or even from Paris. What an honour to be called by Mamy Wata, the queen of the oceans...
