AFRICA SINGS!: MINDJER DOCE MEL

I first became acquainted with the beautiful singing of Ms. Eneida Marta when I purchased a copy of the Putamayo Audio CD Acoustic Africa, released on September 5, 2006. Eneida Marta is a singer from Guinea-Bissau who sings in Portuguese and Guinea-Bissau Creole. She has released three albums since 2001 — Nô Stória (2001), Amari (2002), and Lôpe Kaï (2006).

Located in West Africa, Guinea-Bissau  is home to some of the most inventive and illustrious of African musicians and singers.

 

And now, here is the lovely song Mindjer Doce Mel, sung by Ms. Marta.

Enjoy!

Mindjer Doce Mel

Mindjer n’odja bu kurpu bati
N’odja bu udjus bermedjus, ai
N’odja ansia na bo
Mindjer n’misti nan pa bu rispira
N’misti nan pa bu diskansa
N’misti pa bu vivi

N’misti na notis di turbada
N’misti na notis mar midunhu
N’misti odjau ku na luta
Ma ku djitu tem ku luta
Sin vingansa bu na vinsi

Mindjer oh doce mel
Mindjer oh mindjer
Mindjer oh mamê
Mindjer oh…

Sol na lumia bu dias
Lua na lumia bu notis
Strela na mostrau kaminhu
Pa e mundu di ermons
Ki na bu vida ê virau kosta

Guirta liberdadi
Kuma pa da Cesar kir ki di Cesar
Mindjer tomau direitu

Guirta liberdadi
Guirta, guirta, guirta, guirta…
Kuma pa da Cesar kir ki di sil
Mindjer tomau direitu
Toma toma toma tomau direitu

Mindjer oh doce mel
Mindjer oh mindjer
Mindjer oh mamê
Mindjer oh…
