about

This song was composed as part of a collaboration with Dancer/Musician Choreographer Wilfried Souly for his performance piece Saana. With Tom Moose & Julio Montero

The lyrics are traditional African proverb about foreigners.

lyrics

Saana, El Extranjero

Ojos tiene Saana
Ojos grandes Saana
Para no ver ‘na

Si, si no quieres Saana
Casate con tu hermana
Que ella no es Saana

Ooh, oh uh oh uh oh oooh oh



Saana, The Foeigner

Eyes has the foreigner,
Big eyes, foreigner
So he can see nothing

If you don't like Foreigner
Marry your sister
Because she is not a foreigner

Ooh, oh uh oh uh oh oooh oh
