Extremely nice! It's nice to hear songs in a conlang! :)) I especially liked the last one, which has a definite feel to it, slightly sounding like a Semitic rhythm, but at the same time unique! Since my ears are not so good at recognising sounds though, I cannot comment on your use of X-SAMPA. But from what I've heard, I couldn't see any flagrant mistake in your transcriptions. Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
