Music sample

Le Mali (popularly known as Pour l'Afrique et pour toi, Mali – French: For Africa and for you, Mali or A ton appel Mali – French: At your call, Mali) is the national anthem of Mali. The words were written by Seydou Badian Kouyaté and the music was by Banzumana Sissoko. Adopted as the national anthem in 1962, its themes are patriotism, national, and African unity. It states the willingness of the people of Mali to lay down their lives for their nation and for liberty. A common theme throughout the song is the desire to strive for a united Africa. Its music is a traditional European style military march.[1]

It was officially adopted less than a year after independence, by loi n° 62-72 du 9 août 1962. It is traditionally played at state ceremonies by the band of the Garde Républicaine of the Armed Forces of Mali. The Malian Young Pioneer movement of the 1960s translated the anthem in the Bambara language for its rallies.

Lyrics[edit]

The first verse begins:

A ton appel Mali
Pour ta prospérité
Fidèle à ton destin
Nous serons tous unis
Un Peuple un But une Foi
Pour une Afrique Unie...

Translated as:

At your call, Mali
for your prosperity
Loyal towards your destiny
we will be all united,
One people, one struggle, one faith,
For African unity...

The chorus is as follows:

Pour l'Afrique et pour toi, Mali,
Notre drapeau sera liberté.
Pour l'Afrique et pour toi, Mali,
Notre combat sera unité.
Ô Mali d'aujourd'hui
Ô Mali de demain
Les champs fleurissent d'espérance
Les cœurs vibrent de confiance

Translated as:

For Africa and for you, Mali,
Our banner shall be liberty.
For Africa and for you, Mali,
Our fight shall be for unity.
Oh, Mali of today,
Oh, Mali of tomorrow,
The fields are flowering with hope
And hearts are thrilling with confidence.

THE SINGING OF NATIONAL PIONEERS OF MALI

This is the Africa Day
It's time for Africa
Oh oh youth
It is the joy
At night the sun disappears radius fresh
Enroll in those
Freedom
Register unit
Register unit
This is the Africa Day
Oh oh youth
It's time for Africa
What a great experience
Our father in dignity Konate
We will follow your way
We want your liver
The Battle of memory
The battle for the future
We will win their
We will win their
This is the Africa Day
Oh oh youth
It's time for Africa
What a great experience
We made those oaths
We will do the Mali
We will Africa
We will Africa
Even if our blood must
We will move forward
Although it is our blood
We go running
This is the Africa Day
Oh oh youth
It's time for Africa
What a great experience
