   Listen to the
 
National Anthems of All
               African Countries


Every day a different African country's national     Anthem will play the entire day on this page.   This gives us an opportunity to listen to all the
National Anthems of each country in Africa.   There are 53 countries in Africa.  Some have
said that Liberia has one of the best Anthems
in the world.  Now we can listen to all the 
National Anthems of Africa and compare ours
with theirs.

The other reason for this exercise
is to provide our people the opportunity to listen to, and to learn about other African countries, see their flags, hear their National Anthems, and enjoy the very beautiful music we call, a country's National Anthem.  Much of our information comes from Nationalanthem.info. 

  Please take note of the dates each

country's Anthem is played.  We begin with
South Africa on the 5th of August and end with
São Tomé and Principe on September 24, 2013.  
If you want to know more about any of the
African countries, just click on the name of 
the particular country below on the left in blue among the list of 53 countries and you will have the information right there at your finger tip.
__________________________________________

One interesting factor about the listing of the  African countries in the order in which they are listed.  They are listed with the country with the highest per capital income above and the lowest per capital income at the bottom of the list. Liberia is 6 up from the bottom.   Total number of countries is 53.

Arabic lyrics Transliteration English translation
 
حماة الحمى يا حماة الحمى
هلموا هلموا لمجد الزمن
لقد صرخت في عروقنا الدماء
نموت نموت ويحيا الوطن
لتدو السماوات برعدها
لترم الصواعق نيرانها
إلى عز تونس إلى مجدها
رجال البلاد وشبانها
فلا عاش في تونس من خانها
ولا عاش من ليس من جندها
نموت ونحيا على عهدها
حياة الكرام وموت العظام
 
ورثنا السواعد بين الأمم
صخورا صخورا كهذا البناء
سواعد يهتز فوقها العلم
نباهي به ويباهي بنا
وفيها كفا للعلى والهمم
وفيها ضمان لنيل المنى
وفيها لأعداء تونس نقم
وفيها لمن سالمونا السلام
 
إذا الشعب يوما أراد الحياة
فلا بدّ أن يستجيب القدر
ولا بد لليل أن ينجلي
ولا بد للقيد أن ينكسر
Chorus:
Ḥumāt al-ḥimá yā ḥumāt al-ḥimá

Chorus

Chorus:
O defenders of the Homeland!
Rally around to the glory of our time!
The blood surges in our veins,
We die for the sake of our land.
Let the heavens roar with thunder
Let thunderbolts rain with fire.
Men and youth of Tunisia,
Rise up for her might and glory.
No place for traitors in Tunisia,
Only for those who defend her!
We live and die loyal to Tunisia,
A life of dignity and a death of glory.
Chorus
As a nation we inherited
Arms like granite towers.
Holding aloft our proud flag flying,
We boast of it, it boasts of us,
Arms that achieve ambitions and glory,
Sure to realize our hopes,
Inflict defeat on foes,
Offer peace to friends.
Chorus
When the people will to live,
Destiny must surely respond.
Oppression shall then vanish.
Fetters are certain to break.
Chorus

A life of dignity and a death of glory.

Arms like granite towers. 

Holding aloft our proud flag flying,

Offer peace to friends.
