Sankofa Intro – Azawi
Okumanya gyenvudde we
Kuba kizulidwa nti
Okusomoka bulungi ebiseera byo eby’omumaaso
Olina okudako emabega nokumikiriza
Osobole okutegera bulungi
How can I know where am going,
if I don’t know where I came from?
How do I get to the market,
if I can’t remember which house I left from?
How can I journey into the future
when the past is not clear?
When you’re lost, they tell you to retrace your steps
Find your way back there
And to be honest, we are lost
Help us, we are lost
Who are we?
Aren’t our ancestors kings and queens of old?
Now tell me.
Aren’t we the ones from the continent blessed with more than gold?
How do we find our selves?
Go back and get it
How do we free ourselves?
Go back and find it
Go back and own it
Go back you know it
To find your way to your future
Journey to your past
Your path is in your past
And in your past, lies your present
Give your past your presence
And in the future, you shall find that present
