My poem translated into asu (Kipare, Pare, Pare-Asu, Ashu, Athu, Casu, Chasu, Chiasu, Kiathu). This Bantu language which comes from the Pare Mountains in northeastern Tanzania, it is spoken by 400.00 speakers.
The drying up of the Sahara during the Neolithic period led to the great migrations of the Proto-Bantus from the region between Niger and Oubangui, from the end of the 2nd to the 1st millennium BC. Crossing the Pygmies' domain, they emerge into the south-Congo region, in the south of the great forest, driving back people who lived by hunting and picking. They have a remarkable development in these savanna regions favorable to agriculture, because of their technical knowledge (particularly in the iron work), and because to their numerical superiority. They will irradiate everywhere in the south and the east, that why one finds them also in the Pare Mountains in Tanzania.
