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 …..
