Todos Nós (Gijs Andriessen - Musik, Juca Filho - Text, Claudio Nucci - Gesang)
Na calma de uma lua do Xingu
O sol em Nova Deli de manhã
Meninas lindas do Afeganistão
No fundo todos Deuses são iguais
In the silence of the moon in Xingu (night in the valey of the amazon indios)
In the sun of New Delhi in the morning
Pretty girls in Afganinstan
Basically all Gods are the same
Heavy Metall do Senhor (Zeca Baleiro)
O cara mais underground que eu conheco é o diabo
Enquanto isto Deus brinca de gangorra no playground
A banda cover do diabo acha que ja esta por fora
Heavy Metall of the Lord
The most "underground" guy I know is the Devil
While this, God plays a game in the playgound
The Devils Coverband feels that they are out
Ponto de Oxum (Luli e Lucina / Dercio Marques)
Olha a água do céu
(Oxum is the african saint of the sweet waters)
Look at the water from heaven
Onde navega o Ser (Bené Fonteles / Dercio Marques)
Dentro de minha alma
Quando eu canto
Marlui Miranda und UAKTI: Tchori Tchori
I dont know what the indian words mean, but the colaboration of the indian decendent singer with the white band arround the instrument creator and composer Marco Antonio Guimarães certainly created interracial content.
There is nothing wrong about observations like "black people run quicker that the white". Its due to their phisical condition and the Olympic games proove it.
Also: "the black rob more than the white". Its due to their economical situation and statistically prooven.
Rassism starts when someone transfers such observation to a single individual!
Whether a person is a thief or not has nothing to do with statistics and decendence but only with his unique personality.
The real rassist is convinced that one race has a higher value than another. This is dangerous, wrong and hopefully rather fading away.
So we are allowed to speak about racial tendencies because they are real, and we should live with them, love, valorize and respect them and comprehend the downsides that any tendency of any race has.
The tabu as dangerous as rassism itself.
M. Grob, 1999
