    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.

First Bob Marley in Creole


Who the cap fit
(Bob Marley)
Kem ki karapuça sirbi (versão criolo: Mario Lucio)

Mal cu mal
Homis so injusto
Nca sabi flau
Ki ora ke susto
Bu pior inimigo podi ser bu amigo
E bu midjor amigo bu pior inimigo
Sabe m’es ta cre ti celebrau
Bu da banda es sa saboteau
So um amigo sabe bus segredus
Nton so el pode revelas

Ken ki carapuça sirbi
Largal co el el

Nsimia un grão un grão
Nca txoma corbo
Nfla so cu cu cu
clac clac clac

Ei, sabe m’ es ta odiau
Bu diante es ta amau
Bu da bandas es_ ta tenta eliminau
Ma Dios Jah da
Nunca homi tra
Diós graça
Pior dja passa
Hipócritas e parasitas
Es crê so parce e da na vista
Si bu noti bira un lindo dia
Ala nton ess people
Ta sucundi na areia

Ken ki carapuça sirbi
Dexal co el el
