about

dedicated to my Mum and all mothers, this song is accompanied by a beautiful clarinet improvisation by Yoni Kaston, recorded at Cardboard Studios in Montréal.

Yoni introduced me to Zal Idrissa Sissokho (thanks Yoni!), who spent years teaching me kora in his home in Montréal and getting me on stage for my first shaky performances. Merci Zal pour tout ce que tu m'as partagé.

lyrics

mama you are
the light of my world
the spark of my heart
the laughter that scares off the dark

mama you are
the song of the morning
the calm flowing river
that washes the worry away

mama you are
all the memories of meaning
if we had nothing else now
at least we'd know who we are

mama you're tired
of carrying all the burdens
i'll keep calling for peace now
so that you can be calm
