I’d like you to help me with this song… Would you know what it means? I think it’s a song from Congo, I checked and it’s a song from the Voodoo repertoire. “Baba” means “baby”. Here’s the song…
Oh oh oh lele
oh dei bondei baba
If anyone can help with the meaning of this song, and/or if you know what language it’s in, please let us know in the comments below.

I think you might mean this one, we sing it in a community choir in Glasgo.
I’m afraid I do t know any background except it’s a lullaby rowing song!
Hope this helps,
