about

This is an african ritual chant composed by Nicomedes and Victoria Santa Cruz , inspired in Old African tales. Zanahary is the supreme deity of the Madagascan pantheon, African mythlogy. All the lyrics are in African dialect: found some translation "Life shines through your radiant smile", the Nicomede´s decima preceding this chant goes back to the Holy Inquisition Days, when the black were always related to witchcraft due to their frequent practice of African rituals, like chants, and dances, and for which they were hanged.
