purer sense: closer, more real and humane. When I need mandinga, I want to always use it, grow with it. That`s why I`m here in school, to learn exactly this.
Ladainha, composed by Cristina
I was at the edge of the ocean I was there to contemplate the sea I was flirting with the waves And I prayed to Iemanjá Strong wind, seaquake Iemanjá Gives fear to sail When I dissolve in these waves I may even grow So I answer With a slight shiver Strong wind, seaquake You will have to calm down Whirling, floating, drifting Over the sea The moon only loves the sun To be able to shine Your sword is of war For love For Capoeira In your womb I seek refuge As destiny of this love.
