The Blacks of Combo speak,
The ones from Tuman answer
A landurun durun durundá

The ones from Salamanca say
The ones from Lambayeque say
"How are they doing in Zaña?"
a landurun durun durundá.

Where'd ya' come from, over there?
Where're ya' coming from now?
I'm coming from the lake
from gathering reeds
from gathering now...

GOLPE E' TIERRA
HABLAN LOS NEGROS
Recopilación de Luis Roca de un canto de Juan Leiva/Zaña
Recreado por Susana Baca y Félix Vílchez

Hablan los negros del Combo
contestan los de Tumán
a landurun durun durundá

Los de Salamanca dicen
los de Lambayeque dicen
en Zaña cómo estarán
a landurun durun durundá.

De’onde vienes vienes
de’onde vienes ora
y vengo de la laguna
ay, de segar totora
de segar ahora,
de segar totora,
de segar ahora...
