BUSBUSI! SAFSAFRI! (funny song in Sranan Tongo language)

A Tigri e Libi ini a Sranan Busbusi, English title: The Jaguar Lives in the Wilderness of Suriname.

The first part of the video plays a song in Sranan Tongo language. Sranan Tongo is the native language of my parents from Suriname, but I cannot speak this language. That’s why I mispronounce all words in this song. It’s so funny.

In the second part of the video I talk about protecting jaguars in the Amazon rainforest. The documentary part shows real jaguars in a zoo in the Netherlands.
