Rundi love poem

Icirore

Ishusho yawe mu cirore

N'umwivugo wanje mwiza cane

Ariko girabwangu itarazimangana

Niyo ndagukunda yanje yanyuma!

Kirundi language and Rundi people

My love poem translated into Kirundi, also called (Roundi, Rundi, Ikirundi, Urundi, Igisoni, Ikibo, Ikimoso, Ikinyabweru, Ikiragane, Ikiyogoma, Urumoso, Hima), a language very similar to Kinyarwanda, both are inter-comprehensible.

This Bantu language, ruanda rundi official in Burundi with French, is spoken in Central Africa by 13 million people!

Kirundi, which was originally the language of the Hutus, was adopted by other ethnic groups. It shares a great proximity with the language of Rwanda, Kinyarwanda.

As regards the Bantu languages, the whole Kinyarwanda Kirundi, in terms of number of speakers, is placed just after Swahili and Lingala.

Burundi, a mountainous country, is located in the northeast of Tanganika. The Rundis (Barundis), are the Bantu population that gave its name to Burundi.

They are culturally close to the Ruandas, and are farmers and herders (Nilotic influence).

Patrilineal (filiation mode for which paternal kinship alone exists), and patrilocal (residence mode of the couple, the woman coming to live in the family of her husband), organized in segmental lineages, they lived in scattered family hamlets. They presented a complex state organization, placed under the aegis of a "divine king".
