Boros Kopongukaban (Introduction)

It is with great pleasure that I present to you this page devoted to the language of my native ancestors, the Kadazan Dusun folk of the North Borneo. The Kadazan Dusun languages are such beautiful languages to be left behind… yet, that’s what happened. Many of the new generation nowadays know little about the languages. I hope I can contribute in any way, to place, to grow and to keep the interest of the young generation to learn and understand more of our Kadus Languages. This might be just any page that you can find in the internet, but this is the small thing that I could do to contribute. Let's keep this language live within our souls through music.

Jo-Anna Sue Henley Rampas - Siou (Dusun Version)

Song title: Siou (Dusun Version)
Singer: Jo-Anna Sue Henley Rampas
Melody and Lyric: Jo-Anna Sue Henley Rampas

koilo koh ih nangku
iya rombituon ku
maya diti sinding
oruol ginawo ku

Siou ..
longonku au girot 
Minongonggom diya
soira toh milisih om miginawo

Ontok koi toguang ku
pinologos ku diya
opurimananku sinduol nu
au ku iya sinisiwo 

notolikudan koh
id kotuongon nu
tuh manu oku kinohongon nu

Nga siou nopo diya 
tu' noindaman tomod koh 
mantad koboboyo'on ku
Ogomu kopio piumanan ku

Om gisom baino 
aiso nodi boros nuh 
tuminongkiad ko
aiso koh tokito ku 
koilo koh ih nangku
iya rombituon ku
maya diti sinding
langadon oku diya 

haro poh nangku
lisih nu doho
rumamit toh poh nangku 
'ti lisih ku
oi koupusan ku..

simbaro oku diya
kada toh pologoso
piupusan tolumis
nawayaan toh

koilo ko ih nangku
iya rombituon ku
maya diti sinding
langadon oku diya..

maya diti sinding ku
oruol ginawo ku..
