That sounded very nice...

Though it would be nice to have some "translations" + "lyrics"

Other than that...it was a wonderful cultural experience to listen to music from Garoua, North Cameroun.

It sounds wonderful....but I want to know what your singing about.
I know some parts are in english...but I can't understand the rest.

Smirne responds:

thank you very much for your comments.
the song is about love for a girl (fatima), the title should sound like "with your love you made me lose my mind". The language is fulfulde. Unluckily i don't have a translation in english here, but I'll sent it soon as a private message. Here's the part in english:

You caught me in a warm black night
just like those pit-a-pat dreams that pass sometimes
there had to be something attractive in you
perhaps the spotless charm of the things so pure
wake up my dormant desires
and I will try to leave you a trace of mine
waiting for the rain to come
singin'ide ma-da odo sakkli am


i liked your song even if i cant speak falfude its cool and i wonder what those ide mada odo sakli am means

Smirne responds:

that means 'with yout love you made me lose my head"

Very interesting

I really like the backup vocals on the chorus. Very well produced. I have no idea what language it's in, but it's awesome nonetheless. Great job!

Smirne responds:

thank you! The language is Fulfulde, it's speaked in center Africa. This song was recorded in Garoua, North Cameroun.
