about

This is a beautiful song that I incorporated into my repertoire in 2012. I was asked to do a tribute concert for the then recently deceased CapeVerdian chanteuse Cesaria Evora. I had been listening to her music since the ñate 90s, and was very honoured to be able to pay tribute to her.

lyrics

La na cêu bô ê um estrela
Ki catá brilha
Li na mar bô ê um areia
Ki catá moiá
Espaiod nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra sabe chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná
Espaiote nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná
Oi tonte sodade
Sodade sodade
Oi tonte sodade
Sodade sem fim
Espaiote nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná
Petit pays je t'aime beaucoup
Petit petit je l'aime beaucoup
