Tchuhetén Betsèmu – UKanDanZ

uKanDanZ (Ehtiopian crunch – France/Ethiopia). A unique style, an unusual meeting between an electric quartet and Asnake Guebreyes,charismatic lead singer originates from the vibrant music scene in Addis Abeba. Their music is inspired by traditional and popular Ethiopian songs. uKanDanZ has a real crunch energy. Between rock, jazz, noise… With impertinence, they rock it wildly. Without compromise. Guitar, saxophone, bass, drums and vocals shuffle our bearings. What a pleasure! The stage presence of uKanDanZ swings alternately between energy and emotion… then the public, transcended, dances and shivers.

Tchuhetén betsèmu – Si vous entendiez mon cri / If You Hear my Cry

J’appelle au secours pour qu’on m’entende
Je crie parce que je suis blessé
Vous autres, si vous m’écoutiez, vous partageriez ma détresse
Je vous raconte combien elle m’a offensé
J’ai peiné, j’ai tout fait pour qu’elle soit bien
Mais elle n’a l’estime de rien
Je m’épuise pour elle, mais elle n’est qu’illusion
Elle me rit au nez, elle se moque de moi
Jour et nuit je ne pense qu’à son bien-être
Je supporte tout, je fais ses quatre volontés
Mais elle n’en a jamais assez
Elle veut ma mort, elle me mine
Si vous entendiez mes cris, je vous le demande
Faites qu’elle cesse de me mortifier.

I am calling for help, let me be heard
I cry out for I am wounded.
If you others listened to me you would share my distress
I’m telling you how much she has offended me
I knocked myself out, I did everything so that she would be happy
But she has respect for nothing.
I wear myself out for her, but she is nothing but an illusion
She laughs in my face, she mocks me
Day and night I think only of her welfare
I put up with everything, I do whatever she wants
But it’s never enough for her
She’ll be the death of me, she’s using me up
If you hear my cries, I ask you
Make her stop tormenting me.
