Here's a version of Frère Jacques from Central Africa in the Sango language.

Zâke is the local name for Jacques. "Îtä" means sister or brother (without a religious meaning). It can even be extended to cousins or very close friends.


This song can be found on the cd, "Comptines et berceuses du baobab".

The 1st song in the video below is "Îtä Zâke"...
