Shimmering acoustic guitar intro sets mood for a spooky chant-like melody hook over mid tempo warm tabla groove. Written as personal wish for Francophone dancer friend with health crisis to once again be able to dance.

lyrics en Francais TRANSLATION: "My Brother"


French with English translation:

Mon frere il danse (My brother he dances)
Mon il danse (my brother dances)
Il danse entre terre et ciel (he dances between earth and heaven)

Mon frere il pense (My brother he's thinking
Mon frere il pense (he's thinking)
Il ne pense qu'a vivre dans le moment (he thinks only of living in the moment)


Mon frere est mon saveur (my brother is my savior)
Mon frere, mon savor (my brother my savior)
mon saveur a besoin d'etre sauve (my savior needs to be saved)

Mon coeur prie (my heart prays)
Prie pour lui (prays for him)
Qu'il dansera a nouveau (that he will dance once again)
