    Funaná is dancing. It is a song to dance, a song of dance, uprising and rhythm. It is also a song to contemplate, an intention to dance, an emotion that we inhabit through the movements of our bodies. Funaná is an energetic song, which carries at the same time the power and fragility of life. It is an awareness of the instant. Tomorrow will be difficult or beautiful, but for now we dance. We do not dance to forget or to have forgotten, we dance in fullness. We dance with everything, with everything that yesterday brought us of pain, torments, and uncertainties, but also of love, desire and joy. We dance integers, vibrants with each other. Dancing, we listen to the mystery, we feel all the poetry, we capture the essence.

    This is my homage. Hail all of those who came before me.

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam…
Pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam dentu’l mo
pa Nca pode tem

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam,
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam dentu’l boca
pa Nca pode cume

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam,
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam dentu’l petu
pa Nca pode mbraça

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam,
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam na ragass
pa Nca pode xintal

Ma Nhu ta perdoam
Pamo mi é um pobre pecador
Conta ki Ntem pa Njusta cu Nho
É ó ki N bai

Enquanto N sta li gó, flam

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam, __
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam dentu d’odjo
pa Nca pode spia

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam, __
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam na ponta oredja
pa Nca podi brinca

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam,
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam na ponta nariz
pa Nca tem um palmo

Dios pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam,
pa Nhu dam, pa Nhu dam na ponta língua
pa Nca pode hm

Ma Nhu ta perdoam…



God, why
Oh why
Why do you put what I can’t have in my hand?

God, why
Oh why
Why do you put what I can’t eat in my mouth?

God, why
Oh why
Why do you put what I can’t embrace in my heart?

God, why
Oh why
Why do you put what I can’t sit down on my lap?

Lord, forgive me
For I’m just a poor sinner
The account I have with You
Can only be settled when I go

But while I’m here, tell me

God, why
Oh why
Why do you put what I can’t look at in my line of sight?

God, why
Why do you dangle what I can’t play with
Beside my ears?

God, why
Why do you dangle what I can’t take a bite of
In front of my nose?

God, why
Why do you put what I can’t ahhmmmm
On the tip of my tongue?

But please forgive me, Lord…
