Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.50. Item notes : From available documentation: the English translation of the song lyrics are "women are troublesome although they sometimes help, they bring water. His ndongo (sansa) is talking, just hear my ndongo, just hear my ndongo. The woman is a road, the woman is a plantain stem, someone who did not plant it can cut it down".
