Hello, in this song by the Neapolitan group "la Maschera" the lyrics are in Neapolitan except for 2 stanzas which are in a language that I do not know, since the song was recorded in Dakar, Senegal with the participation of the local artist "Laye Ba" I presume that the language is a Senegalian one, (maybe Wolof ?) . I would like to knows if someone know the languages used and could provide me with a translation, here the 2 stanzas in this language:
Nioo booke faniuu diogue
Booke faniuuy deloo
Ngua am yaay ma am baay
Deret bi benela
Ngua am yaay ma am baay
Deret bi benela
And:
jamm laniuuy nian
moom laniuuy nian burbi yalla
xiro nguayogui
waruniuu thi sunu bir
xiro nguayogui
waruniuu thi sunu bir
And here a links to the songs, so you can hear it:
[Youtube title: La Maschera feat. Laye Ba - Te vengo a cercà (Official video)]
There are no copyright issue since this link is directly from the official video of the official channel of the group.
Thank you very much for your help
