“አበባ ነህ ፍሬ?”

የትናንት አበባ
የዛሬ ፍሬ
ጥያቄዎች ሁሉ
“አበባ ነህ
ፍሬ?”

አበባም
ፍሬም
ነኝ
ዘር ማንዘር
የበዛኝ

የሰው ልጅ
ሰው
ነኝ

Enjoying this new music video by Mahmoud Ahmed and Gossaye Tesfaye:

“Adera” is the title, which is to say “defend, preserve and protect your heritage,” of course, the good part. The bad has to be discarded as it only contributes negatively.

In the song, the older Mahmoud is urging the younger Gossaye to “preserve the artistic, cultural, musical heritage” that has been passed on. Gossaye assures Mahmoud not to worry about it as the new and future generations will make sure that happens.
