Salif Keita is partly of griot/jeli ancestry. One of the things griots do is maintain an oral history of West Africa. They also sing praises to great people and families. That's what he's doing here: FATHER OF KALIMAMADI ONE CAN KNOW THE TRUTH BE TOO COOWARDLY TO SAY IT KNOW A REMEDY FOR THE EYES AND CIVE IT KNOW A REMEDY FOR THE BACK AND REFUSE TO OH SON OF KANCOREBA SON OF HADIA FANTA YOU ARE UNIQUE YOU ARE MIGHTY (2 times) YOU ARE THE KING!
