Susan Arnold wrote to me with a question about a song:
I am looking for an accurate translation of the song “Aweneh Makole”. The only thing I know about the song is that it is call and response. I’ve known it for ages and it’s used quite a lot in schools here in the UK. I suspect it is West African, possibly even Ghanaian, but others may know differently. I’m looking for a translation of:
“Aweneh Makole, Mbako Menoshway” and the correct pronunciation for it. I think it is sometimes sung:
Good wishes and thanks for the website.
If anyone can help with this song, and/or provide information about its language and country of origin, please comment below.
