SaRahas bidrag ”Kizunguzungu” i Melodifestivalen 2016 har tydliga östafrikanska influenser. Såväl kläder, musik och framträdande har inspirerats av Tanzania – landet där hon växt upp och redan etablerat en karriär som artist.

Låten är delvis på swahili och delvis på engelska. I sticket använder hon en traditionell Tanzanisk barnramsa.


Texten är en kaxig kärlekslåt som handlar om förälskelse, men sticket handlar däremot om badande ankor.

– Visan betyder ’de små små ankorna badar’ och sjungs om och om igen. Den har ingen bokstavlig betydelse i låten, men den används ofta i Tanzanisk musik och jag ville använda den som en symbol för min kultur.

Texten: Kizunguzungu

You run away you run away
whenever I get close

You run away you run away
what are you running for

Baby why do you go
when I know you wanna stay
we tulia we tulia

We unakimbia we unakimbia
ila kaka najua najua unanitaka
bonna unakimbia we unakimbia

Sema why do you go
why do you go away
now hear me say

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama
uh we uh we

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama
uh we uh we

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama uh we uh we

You run away you run away
you can do better

You run away you run away
keep coming back for more

Baby why do you go
listen to what I say
we tulia we tulia

We unakimbia we unakimbia
ila kaka najua najua unanitaka
bonna unakimbia we unakimbia

Sema why do you go
why do you go away
now hear me say

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama
uh we uh we

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama
uh we uh we

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama uh we uh we

Mabata mamata madogo
madogo yanaogelea

Mabata mamata madogo
madogo yanaogelea

Sema
Sema Sema
Sema Sema Sema

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama uh we uh we

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama uh we uh we

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama uh we uh we

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me Kizunguzungu we

Guys guys guys... Say wathever you want, but this song is great. Amazing performance and great voice, it's fresh and it goes to the final!
I loved Isa and her song! But it's just a ballad. Kizunguzungu is something new! :)

I understand Isa is an established artist in Sweden with a fanbase who are sad to see her go home but as someone who compared only these two songs I preferred this one. SaRaha is such a joy on stage. Very happy with how the duel ended. She probably won't win the whole contest but definitely it's a great contribution to the final.

I think this got to the final because the perfomance changed a lot since de semifinal and when I saw it I was like "This is a LOT better than semis", instead ISA kept it the same and actually it was good but I think this got new things that improved it and the people just was awesomed because of it.

Jag älskar power ballader - därför älskar jag musikaler då huvudkvinnan ska ha sin power sång. T ex Christine Daaé Wishing you were somehow here again

Gillar den här låten. Även om jag gillar Isa's låt bättre så förtjänar denna att komma i final absolut.
