Happy Islamic New Year 1431!

Happy New Year to all of my Muslim friends in commemorating the 1431st year since the Prophet’s Hijra. Allah ya ba da zaman lafiya.

And in other topics, here is my song obsession for the day. Nazifi Asananic’s “Dawo Dawo” (“Come back, Come back”) as featured in the Hausa film Garinmu da Zafi. (Forgive me for not italicizing. My laptop mouse is broken and I have a hard time highlighting things anymore…)

  1. I thought this song was beautiful. I wish I knew what the young man in particular was saying.

  2. This song, written and sung by Nazifi Asnanic, was a hit last year, which was later used in this film Garinmu da Zafi.

    I don’t have time to translate the whole thing right now, but here’s a very rough transcription/translation of the beginning:

    Zainab Indomie: Dawo Dawo
    Come back, come back,

    Ali Nuhu: Yau zan yi tafiyata
    Today I will go away.
    Ba zan zauna ba
    I won’t stay

    Ali:
    Ranar zafi. inuwa kuma nisa na koma.
    The sun is hot. The shade is far. I’m going back (??)
    Yau zan yi tafiyata
    Today I will go away
    Ba zan zauna ba
    I won’t stay.

    Zainab:
    Dawo Gida. Don Allah sauke kayanka.
    Come back home. For God’s sake put down your bag
    Ai garinmu da zafi. Baka saba ba.
    Our city is hot. You are not used to it.

    Ali: Sallama nake kuna jina.
    I’m bidding farewell, you all hear me.

    Zainab:Dawo Dawo
    Come back. Come back.

    Ali: Ga shi yau ina ta bankwana
    Here it is, today I’m saying goodbye

    Zainab: Dawo Dawo
    Come back, Come back

    Ali: Zan bar gari kuna ganini
    I’ll leave the city, you all see me.

    Zainab: Dawo, Dawo
    Come back, Come back

    Ali: Godiya nake masoyana
    I’m thanking you, my love.

    Zainab :Dawo, Dawo
    Come back, come back

    Ali: (….) za mu yi masoyana
    We will (…), my love

    Zainab: Dawo Dawo
    Come back, Come back

    Ali: Za mu dinga saman aikina
    We will keep finding work(??)

    Zainab: Dawo, Dawo
    Come back, Come back

    Ali:Za (….) raina
    We will (…) my life

    Zainab: Dawo Dawo
    Come back, Come back

    Ali: Zan dafa rai, kawai ina kuka. Ba zan zauna ba.
    (….) I’m crying. I will not stay.

    Zainab:
    Dawo Gida. Don Allah sauke kayanka.
    Come back home. For God’s sake put down your bag
    Ai garinmu da zafi. Baka saba ba.
    Our city is hot. You are not used to it.
