Nós tenemos muitos nabos! Good Portuguese music!


Hello friends and Zazzlers!

Celebrating the Revolution with good regional folk Portuguese music! It's good and it's new! This band is called Galandum Galundaina. They adopted an old song that you can listen in this video below. By the way, Michel Giacometti was French but lived in Portugal for 30 years. He gathered a lot of information about popular culture namely music. (It seems this new song from Galandum is, in fact, recreating two songs but I only got the lyrics for the first one.)


If you don't understand the lyrics of this song, well, don't worry, I don't understand it completely because this group sings songs in "mirandês", a Portuguese language used in north-east Miranda do Douro. To know more about mirandese, please visit this site! Their songs are about the rural way of life, quite poetic, funny and high-spirited! You just have to love it! Nós tenemos muitos nabos...


Nós tenemos muitos nabos
a cozer nua panela,
nun tenemos sal nien unto
nien presunto nien bitela

Mirai qu'alforjas, mirai qu'alforjas
uas mais lhargas, outras mais gordas
uas de lhana, outras de stopa

Ls chocalhos rúgen, rúgen
ls carneiros alhá ban
an chegando a Ourrieta Cuba
ls carneiros bulberan.

Mirai qu'alforjas, mirai qu'alforjas
uas mais lhargas, outras mais gordas
uas de lhana, outras de stopa.
