26th May 2015: Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe – Enu Uwa Ebuka

Language – Igbo (from Nigeria)

Translation – Google Translate has this as ‘Desire world stocks’.  I suspect this may be incorrect…according to the very helpful Igbo – English online dictionary (http://www.igboenglish.com/igbo-nigerian-words-e.php), ‘enu ụwa’ means ‘whole world’.  ‘Ebuka’ is not listed though, so I am not really sure…

Anyway, this song is fantastic.  I felt very calm listening to this a few times earlier on. I love the fact that there was a musical genre called ‘Igbo Highlife’. I just wish I knew what they were singing about…
