lyrics

Taako – (from Ochre and Water) translation from Himba
Hepute Tjisiurure – name of the old lady with deep voice
----------------------------------------------
My son “Manueere” used to walk tall
Never hunched over –
born in a place called Mahuwe (tall rocks)
He had a dusty calabash which became a holy item
Only the clan could use it
He was beautiful
He was born in the rainy season
(engangahozu) –the first grass was starting on the mountain
Guinea fowl were laying eggs
Sitting on the eggs
My beautiful son was like a king and he always wanted to be carried around even though he was not sick
Is this how people are recorded?
yes
