Tamikrest: Tissnant in Chatma Nine

Tamikrest

Tamikrest is a band of musicians belonging to the Tuareg people. Originally hailing from Kidal, in the northeast of Mali, as the result of ongoing war, persecution and political collapse, most of the band now lives in exile in Algeria. They sing in the Tuareg language Tamashek.

"Tissnant in Chatma Nine" is a song from the album Chatma. In Tamashek "Chatma" means "Sisters" and the band has dedicated the album in their own words to: "the courage of the Tuareg women, who have ensured both their children's survival and the morals of their fathers and brothers." Read more...

Lyrics

If one knew how much suffering
Bears the soul of anyone watching
His sisters who are patiently tired
Of waiting for a small expectation

If one knew how much suffering
Bears the soul of anyone watching
His sisters who are patiently tired
Of waiting for a small expectation

Anyone watching his sisters
Who are suffering and patiently tired
Of waiting for a small expectation between countries
All this caused by the pain of colonisation

If one knew how much suffering
Bears the soul of anyone watching
His sisters who are patiently tired
Of waiting for a small expectation

Waiting for freedom,
Prevented by hatred cultivated among brothers,
Which is also preventing unity

If one knew how much suffering
Bears the soul of anyone watching
His sisters who are patiently tired
Of waiting for a small expectation
