, there are other Raxanweyn dialects (or languages, not sure what to refer them, as Chinaman hinted) that are a lot more difficult than this. This guy is from Diinsoor/Baydhabo cities and he speaks the regular Maay, well at least to me that's how I understand his Maay.
Here he is at the Arte conference back in 2000 and I can't even understand half of what he's singing in this video, though I can understand about 80 % in the one I posted above:
, you're right. It's about him lamenting about the loss of his love to another guy and arguing with love itself, saying "The girl I wanted is married to another guy, washing his clothes, kissing him at night and waking from the same bed with him in the morning so why are you swearing at me and bothering me like this, love? Why don't you go and bring her to me" etc. <<< Damn! I've just explained the gist of the whole song there. lol
, I thought dialect was like Maay vs Maxaa
and accents like the Mudugaawi vs, Hargeysaawi vs Hawd vs Xamar
etc, no? Not really 100 % sure what is considered a dialect myself and always thought it the way I put it above.
