    Lyrics »

Ceu ja escurece
Mar ja revoltea
A cada segundo
Um estrela ta cai

'M ta lembra jangadero
Bo era grande e tao formoso

Lagrimas ta derrama
Ondas ta desquebra
Inda 'm ta uvi' be
Na sussurar di vento

'M ta lembra quel tempo d'otrora
Docura d'bo riso e di bos mon

Crianca canta bo nome, o jangadero
Homem festeja bo nome, moda um deus, um heroi

Sol ja camba
Mar ja reclama'
Ta risca vida
D'noitinha el ta sei

'M ta lembra, jangadero
Bo era grande e tao formoso

Num ultimo esforco
Morte bo ta desafia
Num ultimo enlace
Oceano ta golpea'

'M ta lembra dess dia triste
Dess dor, dess medo
Quande bo parti

Crianca, canta bo nome, o jangadero
Homem festeja bo nome, o jangada

Commentsby Cesaria Evora. Alan Simon: Paris: For many days, this bewitching melody had been running around inside my head, I heard a courageous woman calling, waiting for the return of her "Jangadero"...and then I thought of Cesaria Evora, the diva from Cap Vert. These humble fishermen sound as if they come from one of Cesaria's stories, the same pain, the same dreams, and Cesaria and her musicians understood immediateiy. Their performance of this hymn to life is so moving that I was completely overwhelmed and it was some time before I could listen to it calmly.
