Two Jola tunes from the Banjourneys CD: Chuck Levy on Akonting/vocals, Mike Eberle on Fiddle. Mariam Sajoe is a beautiful woman who disa ppointed a suitor by keeping company with another man. In the song the jilted suitor is saying "My beautiful girl named Mariam Sajoe left me but I won't blame her. i will just have to accept thatit is the will of God". Belecha is a young beautiful girl who is asked by her boyfriend to kneel in front of him in public so that the community will know that she is in love with him, so that nobody else can take her from him.
