Weekends Mauritanian style

The city dwelling folk in Nouakchott have a favourite pass time of driving to the ourskirts of the city with the entire family and spend a nice few hours under the sky.

There are some spots where a lot of people flock to. In such spots camel milk is sold, and the sellers entertain with some songs. Here is one such song which I recorded. The only musical instrument that I could make out were parts of a plastic canister.

I have no idea what they are singing about – but it was good to hear it. I will try to get it translated and update this post. Meanwhile if any of you can translate it then add it in the comment.
