Haiti at Home – Maman fait Zim

Please enjoy the translation for the song “Maman a fait zim,” about making coffee in the market. This song is in French, the other language of Haiti.

Mom harvested in her pretty basket

a fullness of coffee beans

to grill

Mom went zim zim zim

…..like this, like that

 

The beans are red, yellow and black

like the evening colors

Harvested with effort

before relaxing

Mom went zim zim zim

…..like this like that

 

Attention! Put your hands on your sides

Everybody ready?

Here we go.

What did mom do?

Mom went zim zim zim

…..like this like that
