    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.

Cutelo Baxo
Mario Lucio/MarioLucio

Cutelo baxo sta de riba dess bes
Pamó casamento dja contici na roda
E ca pamodi sta na moda
Ma Cutelo baxo sta de riba dess bes
Embora noiva é de cutelo riba
Ó qui noiva ba se casa
Cutelo riba ta fica de baxo

Ma Cutelo Baxo tem um casa
Um caiça
Quel um casa
Dja casa

Pa más qui mundo tem sabido
Kel li ka sta na si lei, ca sta
Pa casa ca meste de dos casa
Basta un bá punde kel oto
Ness cusa li e dos ki ta faze um

Downhill’s on the rise this time
Because there’s been a wedding in the neighborhood
And not just because it’s in fashion
But Downhill’s on the rise this time
Even though the bride is from up the mountain
When the groom goes to their house
Up’s going to be turned upside down

But Downhill there’s a house
A pair of pants
And that one house
Oh, what a house

No matter how many clever folks there are in the world
This isn’t written in the law
For a house not to need two houses
If both of them fit into one
All you need is for one to go visit the other
