May the Mediterranean be
That ship that goes alone
All music and all sails
On that wave where you fly
Between science and legend
Of flamenco and taranta
And between algebra and magic
In the wake of those sailors
And that wave that never stops
May the Mediterranean be
Go, go, we are all the same Facing the shores of the same sea
And nobody is pirate and nobody is emigrant we are all sailors
Allez, allez il n'y a pas de barrière
Nous sommes tous enfants de la même mer
The n'y a pas de pirate the n'y a pas d'émigrant
Nous sommes tous des navigants
May the Mediterranean be
The fortress has no doors
Every man with his star
In the night of the dancing god
And every people with their God
That accompanies all sailors
And that wave that never stops
May the Mediterranean be
Go go to the same party
Of a music made of different people
From Naples that invents melody
To the drums of Algeria
Allez allez à la même fête D'une musique qui va et jamais s'arrête
De Naples qui invente sa mélodie Aux tambours de l'Algérie
May the Mediterranean be
That ship that has always gone on
Sailing between north and south
Between east and west
And in the sea of ​​inventions
That compass to navigate Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria
And the courage of those sailors
And that journey that never stops
May the Mediterranean be

Song number 2. Lyrics.
Eugenio Bennato,  Che Il Mediterraneo

What country is the African harps from, Figgs? I thought I knew most there was to know about ethnomusicology, but apparently not.

If Yanni helps promote these traditional instruments I'll almost forgive him the smug moustache.
