    Dub maestro Rob Smith remixes The Brave:
    The words, sung in the African languages of Mandinka and Wolof, talk
    about the struggles in life saying that with positive thinking we can rise
    to the challenges and overcome …..

    Sila leyewono (only the person who is patient could do that), Mouniala
    lesoreno (only the brave can do so), Na dimingtá daming Kana bori
    (when it is painfully hard don't run away).

    The tune was originally written in the 1980s by Basil Anderson with
    the Bristol reggae band Restriction for the song I want to be Alone. AMJ,
    the trio that is Andy Clarke (drums), Mark Spence (bass) and John Hollis
    (producer), recorded this new version inviting special guests …..

    Mariama Kouyate, a young singer from Dakar, Senegal. Guitarist
    Moustapha Gaye, also from Senegal, features on Kana Bori and
    Cuban flautist Jose Zalba on the Flute cut. And fellow Cubans
    Vicente Arrencibia on congas and Michel Salazar on keyboards.
