ABOUT THIS TRACK....

the lyricist and singer Afnorock dedicates Winanta (translated "Where are you now?") to the battle of the Moroccan journalist Omar Radi.
Sung in Arabic, the song sees the collaboration between the band and a longtime friend: Afnorock.
A subtle connection emerges between the bluesy feeling evoked by the lyrics and the situation of the populations living in North Africa

lyrics

LYRICS (ENG)...

how many journalists should be arrested and sent to jail
I share rivers of ink for heated rhymes to flow your way
wear your chains today, as for tomorrow you're sent away

world is fully on chaos where's it gonna go anyway
nihilists, nationalists! Incense the only thing that stays
The Incense in Mecca that burns and brings no cure anymore

Rulers suffer the same abuse you feel on you all day long
living for more stuff while lying awake in the dead of night
wear your chains today, tomorrow what becomes of you

feeling thirsty for the bitterness of exile every day
rivers flow but won't turn salt water into fresh anymore
wear your chains today, no chains tomorrow but where are you now?
WINANTA!

LYRICS (ARABIC)

واو، واو، واو، شحال جهدك تشد، تحبس من صحفي
واو، واو، واو، المداد يجري و القوافي بالعوافي
اليوم بالغلا راك هنا، غدا بلا سلاسل راك منفي

واو واو واو، فين غادي هاد العالم الفوضوي
واو، واو واو بين عدمي و وطني مبقا لينا غير الجاوي
الجاوي المكاوي ولا يجرح مايداوي

واو واو واو واش الحاكم بحال المضلوم طول اليوم
واو واو واو في ملكو ساكن ممهني في وسط النوم
اليوم بالغلال هنا، غدا بلا سلاسل وين تكون

واو واو واو اللي ماداق حر الغربة جغمة جغمة
واو واو واو يبقا عطشان كي الملحة ماتحلي الماء
اليوم بالغلا هنا، غدا بلا سلاسل وين انت، وين انت.

وين انت/winanta
