A while back I watched a video where a bunch of girls were dressed in black and white, and doing an "optical illusion" dance with their unique attire. I took note of the song playing during their show, and was interested in hearing the whole song. It is called Tanz by Hiss, a German band I had not heard of until recently. The gist of the song is whatever or whoever you are, come and dance. Just a fun bouncy German tune. The lyrics are below, run through Google translator. Some of the words did not quite catch and came out in old english.

Du bist jung oder alt
reich oder pleite
Moslem oder Christ
Hindu oder Heide
Du bist grün oder blau
schwarz oder weiß
was ist gut für den Körper
für die Seele für den Geist

DER TANZ!

Du hast ne Menge Sorgen
oder du hast keine
bist verlobt geschieden
oder ganz alleine
Du bist dich oder dünn
Jungfrau oder Stier
du wolltest gar nicht kommen
doch jetzt bist du hier

ALSO TANZ!

Wackel mit dem Hintern
hebe deine Beine
tanz mit irgend jemand
oder tanz alleine
Du kannst hüpfen oder zucken
schweben oder bängen
bewege deine Arme
oder lass sie hängen.

ALSO TANZ!

Du heißt Jutta oder Dieter
Klaus oder Olga
bist zu alt für Heavy Metal
zu jung für die Polka
Du fängst an zu schwitzen
keine Luft in dem Dunst
das ist nur gerecht
denn jetzt geht es dir wie uns

ALSO TANZ!


You are young or old
Rich or broke
Hindu or Muslim or
Christian Heide
you are green or blue
black or white
what is good for the body
for the soul to the spirit of
the dance!

Make sure you have a lot
or you have no art
engaged divorced or alone
you are thick or thin
virgin or Bull
you wanted but now
you're not here so
come dance!

Wobbles with the BUM
lift up thine legs
Dance with someone or alone
you can float hopping
or shrug or fear or
don't let them move
your arms hang.
come dance!

Thy name is Jutta or Dieter
Klaus or Olga
are too old for Heavy Metal
too young for the Polka
you'll start sweating
no air in the haze
which is only fair
because now it is like unto us
so dance!

Thanks Victor. It's not a language I speak much so I relied on the internet to translate.

For today I'm bringing Amadou and Miriam and their beautiful African music:
Amadou & Mariam are a Grammy Award-nominated musical duo from Mali, composed of the couple Amadou Bagayoko (guitar and vocals) (born in Bamako 24 October 1954) and Mariam Doumbia (vocals) (born in Bamako 15 April 1958). The pair, known as "the blind couple from Mali" met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind, where they both performed at the Institute’s Eclipse Orchestra, directed by Idrissa Soumaouro, and found they shared an interest in music. Amadou lost his vision at the age of 16, while Mariam became blind at age 5 as a consequence of untreated measles.
