Kamerenèn Donna

A young man who is gifted with special dancing skills is called the Kamerenen Dönna. He is encouraged by the women. Famoudou Konate composed two rhythms with the song ‘Kamerenen Dönna’. It’s a Dunumba rhythm that is one of the ‘dances for the strong men’

eee, Iyo’n kodole ba’ n Kodo, eee dwiwo so kalon Kamerenen Donna
Faninkotumana, malokotuma……Fobondatuma
Faninkotumana, ye denke sondonna……Fobondatuma
O my brother, my older brother

The whole village knows how magnificant the young man dances!
O water, (heaven) The whole village knows how magnificant the young man dances!
The fonio season, the rice season, Harvest time!
Weeding in fonio bring about the birth of boys
