Une belle rencontre artistique entre le pianiste israélien Idan Raichel et le guitariste malien Vieux Farka Touré. La musique est belle, envoûtante, métissée, fluide, elle coule de source. L’amitié aussi est belle.

Parole de Be Good (Lion’s Song):

Be good is her name
And I sing my lion’s song and brush my mane
She would and she could
So she pulled my lion’s tail and caused me pain
She said lion’s are made for cages
Just to look at in delight
You dare not let ’em walk around
’cause they might just bite
Does she know what she does when she dances ’round my cage and says her name?
Be good.. Be good
Be good is her name
I trim my lion’s claw and I, I cut my mane
And I would, if I could
But that woman treats me the same
She said lion’s are made for cages
Just too look at in delight
You dare not let em walk around
’cause they might just bite
Does she know what she does when she dances around my cage?
Be good is her name
I sing my lion’s song, brush my mane
And she would if she could
so she pulled my lion’s tail and caused me pain
She said lion’s are made for cages
Just to look at in delight
You dare not let ’em walk around
’cause they might just biteDoes she know what she does when she dances around my cage?

Be good is her name
I trim my lions’ claws, and I… and I cut my mane
And I would if I could
But be good, treats me the same

She said lion’s are made for cages
Just to look at in delight
You dare not let ’em walk around
’cause they might just bite

Does she know what she does when she dances around my cage?
She dances round my cage
Does she know?
Does she know?

Be good, be good, be good, be good
