about

My parents had a Miriam Makeba album in the house and I used to
listen every day. I’ve loved listening to her version of ‘Malaika’ for
most of my life. The words are in Swahili and translate as follows:

Angel, I love you angel
Angel, I love you angel
and I, what should I do, your young friend
I am defeated by the bride price that I don't have
I would marry you, angel
I am defeated by the bride price that I don't have
I would marry you, angel

Little bird, I think of you little bird
and I, what should I do, your young friend
I am defeated by the bride price that I don't have
I would marry you, angel
I am defeated by the bride price that I don't have
I would marry you, angel
