What's the song Madan (by Salif Keita) about?

Hi folks

I’d love to know what the song “Madan” is about.

Does anyone know how to translate it into English, or perhaps explain what it is about? I know that songs sometimes can be difficult to translate as they sometimes contain cultural elements/meanings that can’t be conveyed by another language.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Pepe! Welcome to the Forum!

I don’t know the song Madan well at all, but I’m moving your post to #requests:request-song-lyrics since you asked for a translation of it :slight_smile:


Thanks very much!
