    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.

Dexa Mininos brinca
Dexa Meninos brinca

Si e um keston de amor
Si e um Cristón de fé
Si e um keston de Paz

E ca un keston de paixon
E ca keston de ca Cre
E ca keston de midjora
E ca keston de piora

Se bu cre tudo cuza dretu
Basta dexa meninos
Dexa meninos brinca

Let the children play
Let the children play

If it’s a question of love
If it’s a Christian of faith
If it’s a matter of peace

It’s not a question of passion
It’s not a question of not wanting
It’s not a question of getting better
It’s not a question of getting worse

If you want everything to be right
All you have to do is let the children
Let the children play
