In September 2002, a rebellion raged in Abidjan and numerous deadly clashes take place all over the city. Marcelin Yacé, my adoptive father, is one of the victims. When he leaves his studio, he is riddled with bullets...
For 19 years, there have never been any investigations into these killings.
I am a musician, a free woman and with this song I want to denounce the silence of the various political powers over this period.
It's something inside of me that never came out... Today I want to express myself and say things with my words. For that, I use my weapon; the music. This beautiful melody on guitar and brass by the great Franco Luambo Makiadi gave me inspiration to write this text.
