The Music by Bah Kerios Wahlang
The music that I love 
The music that I love 
The music that sends me deep in thought   
It calls to me, It leads me 

It’s as old as time  
And it will last beyond the 4 seasons 
It springs from the depths of the Earth 
It flows from the heart of the Duitara (traditional guitar) 
You can hear it’s echo in nature 

Feel it soar from within the Duitara  
It seeps into the veins 
It moves into the soul  

Gently, very gently
it will spreads it’s wings
and come to rest,
on the water, the land and the wind. 

From these 4 simple strings
made of delicate silk, 
it plays in my head.

It sings in my heart 
It makes me yearn. 
Just like the flow of water
an endless circle. 
Night or day,
it moves on its own. 

The music that I love 
The music that I love
