I love his simple music and passion for the subject, yet I'm grateful in this case for my lack of understanding of the lyrics. On a parallel, I have many discussions around listening to music sung in languages other than English. We should remind ourselves that the sound of languages has a musicality of its own, and often, artists renowned for their style in a particular non-English language, lose their magic when they bow to record company pressure to sing in English. Such executives should swallow their Anglo-arrogance and respect the judgement of the artists.
