Afro-Sega - Re-recorded for the "Welele!" album!

lyrics

Afro-Sega

This is new music, it’s called afro-sega
Feel the rhythm, move your feet!

Wake up! this is music
It’s called afro-sega
Wake up! dance this music

Balanser, sakouye bouze ziska ou fatigé (groove, shake and dance until you’re tired)

Wake up! feel the music
It’s called afro-sega

Pa bezwen trakaser, tou ou problem wa bliye (no need to stress, forget all your problems)
Pa bezwen trakaser, tou ou problem les ale (no need to stress, let go of all problems)

Vini nwa balanser, vini nwa sakouye zot (come and dance, come and shake)
Vini nwa selebre, sa nouvo lanmizik I so (come and celebrate, this new music is hot)
Vini nwa balanser, vini nwa sakouye zot (come and dance, come and shake)
Vini nwa melanze, sa nouvo lanmizik I so (come and mingle, this new music is hot)

Chorus

New style sega! new groove sega!
New dance sega! it’s afro-sega!

Wake up! face the music
It’s called afro-sega
Shape up! afro music

Tou dimounn pe koze, sa nouvo stil I araze (everyone’s saying this beat is fresh)

Vini nwa balanser, vini nwa sakouye zot (come and dance, come and shake)
Vini nwa selebre, sa nouvo lanmizik I so (come and celebrate, this new music is hot)
Vini nwa balanser, vini nwa sakouye zot (come and dance, come and shake)
Vini nwa melanze, sa nouvo lanmizik I so (come and mingle, this new music is hot)

New style sega! new groove sega!
New dance sega! new beat sega!
Nou sanz sega! nou groove sega! (we change sega, we groove sega!)
Nou melanz sega! sa afro-sega! (we fuse sega, it’s afro-sega!)
