Lyrics and Translations for Tonight's Program


Njengebhadi Libadula


As the antelope wanders
longing for the spring
it longs also
my heart

Jubilate Deo

"Be Jubilant unto God,

Panta Rhei
All things are in flux (Heraclitus, pre-Scratic philosopher 5th century BC)
Fly away
Best rhythm
Easiest rhythm
Possession for eternity


Yenyere Guma


Yenyere Guma!
Good Evening! How are you?

Jubilate Deo

"Be Jubilant unto God,

Ya Hadi Allah
Oh Divine Guidance G-d. Oh Divine Light.
Oh Divine love that holds the universe together. The unity of love, lover and beloved.

Oi Koledo
Oh, Christmas, my Christmas! The son of God was born!
The Christmas bread (kravai) is jumping off the table; a sausage is boiling in the pot.
Tell us, grandmother, how it was in the old days, when everyone was so happy!


Jubilate Deo
"Be Jubilant unto God,

Mrs. Galo

Mrs. Galo, you have earned your praise! We say, "Hooray!"

Megruli Alilo
Christ was born
on the 25th day of this month
Christ is born in Bethlehem
let us celebrate Christ's birth
we are blessed messengers
Peace be to this place!

Los Pescadores
Walking on the beach is Vicente and his fishing net.
Come here, come with me, come dance, dear friend.
Very early my people go out to fish.
They'll bring back food for their home.
Come to the beach, come along, we'll move our feet.
