Whilst in Réunion Island, Mother’s day will be on Sunday 7th June, in the UK it will be this Sunday 22nd March.
Kozman ti dalon, the band rising from Saint Joseph a little village in the south of the Island took the opportunity to say thank to their mums with this beautiful slow Maloya song.
The title of the song is Sé mon momon! It’s from Reunionese Creole, the local language born in the time of slavery when African slaves tried to replicate the phonetically the language of their French masters.
It means ‘It’s my mum’ and the chorus ‘Oté cafrine la, Sé Mon Momon!’ means Yes, this woman is my mum!
Mister Shakira went back home to say hello to his mum!
Mum, wherever you are… I love you!
