Petit Pays
Cesária Évora Lyrics


La na céu bo é um estrela
Ki catá brilha
Li na mar bô é um areia
Ki catá moja

Espaiote nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra sabe chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná

Espaiote nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná

Oi tonte sodade sodade sodade
Oi tonte sodade sodade sem fim
Oi tonte sodade sodade sodade
Oi tonte sodade sodade sem fim

La na céu bo é um estrela
Ki catá brilha
Li na mar bô é um areia
Ki catá moja

Espaiote nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra sabe chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná

Espaiote nesse munde fora
Sô rotcha e mar
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem morna tem coladera
Terra pobre chei di amor
Tem batuco tem funaná

Petit pays je t'aime beaucoup
Petit petit je l'aime beaucoup
Petit pays je t'aime beaucoup
Petit petit je l'aime beaucoup

Little Country
There in the sky you are a star
Here everything shines
There in the sea you are a sandy seafloor
Here everything is wet
Watching this world outside
There's only rocky cliffs and sea

Poor country full of love
With Morna and Coladera songs
Wise country full of love
With drum circles and Funaná music

Oh so much homesickness
homesickness, homesickness
Oh so much homesickness
Homesickness without end

Little country I love you so much
Little one I love it so much

Over there in the sky, you are a star
That does not shine
Here at sea you are sand that does not get wet
Spread throughout the world

with only rocks and sea
country, full of love
there's morna, there's coladera
nice country, full of love
there's batuque, there's funana

Oh so much sodade, sodade, sodade
Oh so much sodade, endless sodade

Little country, I love you so much
Little, little, I love it very much

Note : sodade can be understand as homesickness in these song. Most capeverdean, when they leave their country for another one live with this feeling endlessly. I personnaly was born abroad but still my parents put that seed in me, and my heart is full of sodade

Cabo Verde is more than a wonderful country, it is an experience !

Eternally grateful to you for this translation, What is so exceptional in her voice of the ages - is that we need no translation in the area of feeling and the path of the heart.

Poor country full of love,
There's Morna and coladera
Good country full of love
There's batuku, there's funana

Z.Bellini

I remember still to this day

When she sang in Montreal's jazz festival 1995 summer time..
Looks like yesterday, she wasn't that known yet, but her story her voice and her presence where amazing.
May she rest in peace.

And may the Angels sing with her in the eternal God's festival
