    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.

Oh, Nanda and Luisinha
Sent each other word to go to church in São Domingos
And to meet at António Soares’ place

Dove, dove
Dove, dove on the balcony

Oh, Nanda and Luisinha
Sent each other word to go to church in São Domingos
And to meet at António Soares’ place

Dove, dove
Dove, dove on the balcony

Oh São Domingo
Oh São Domingo
António Soares is dead
But his name remains

Now that António Soares is dead
São Domingo’s not the same
Funa and Nana, their name remains

Now that António Soares has died
São Domingo’s not what it was
Ah, Tarrafal town
All that’s left is a bunch of moldy crumbs

Dove, dove
Dove, dove on the balcony

Oh, António Soares’ plantation
Oh, António Soares’ plantation
February 2, Saint Dominic’s Day, mourning António Soares’ plantation

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes} 2x
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes}

Oh ye ye ye ya ye ye Jon Garrido
Oh, how I miss Domingo

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes

He ye ye ye ye Granddaughter Gomes
Ye ye boys
How I miss it, I’ll go with you

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes

He ye ye ye let’s go to the Balcony ye ye Água de Gato
How I miss it, I’m going with you

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes

Oh Naia ku Boitá, how I miss Munte Leão,
How I miss it, I’m going with you

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes

Ye ye Caiada, ye ye Água de Gato
Ye ye Rema Rema
Oh, I miss them, I’m going with you

Oh, but I’m not going to Gudim,
How I miss Upper Gudim,
How I miss Lower Gudim,
I’m dying of nostalgia

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes

I miss Pé de Subida
I miss Chaminé
Nostalgia, nostalgia
I’m dying of nostalgia

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes
Everybody

São Domingo’s is finished
All that’s left is a bunch of moldy scraps
Ye ye boys, I miss Várzea d’Igreja

Let’s all mourn Mama Lopes
Let’s all mourn Pepé Lopes
