Well, we don't see the context or traceback of that error, but it
looks like a mysql error on inserting data.
Could it be, that your database is not unicode enabled, e.g. utf-8,
but, say, latin-1?
I don't have experiences with this database this, but I guess, there
must be some configure options for this.
Would maybe setting the encoding in db.connect(...) work?

Hopefully, others might give more reliable suggestions..
