This is a classic djeli song about the Souare family. "Camarin Ba" are those great heroes who gave enormously of themselves for the love of their people. There have been several great leaders who gave of themselves so that others could survive. Missia sings about several, including Sekou Touré (Guinea), Felix Houphouet-Boigny (Côte d'Ivoire), Abdou Diouf (Senegal), Sangoulé Lamizana (Burkina Faso), and Moussa Traoré (Mali).
(Traditional with additional lyrics by Missia Saran Dioubate. In Malinké)
