FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

As per my last post, it is quite important to understand that all Capoeira groups are different. There are differences in the styles of game, the music they play, the history of their group and the songs that they sing.

When I write, I write from the perspective of my group – ABADÁ Capoeira. More specifically it is my interpretation of their perspective.

In many ways, as you get to know your Capoeira group the more they become another family. They will see you in all the seasons of the year, your ups and your downs.

In this way, today’s song is reflective of that.

I am not a native Portuguese speaker so would love some help fixing my translation, so if you see an error let me know below!

Família Abadá – Pretinho

Portuguese

Hoje eu tava pensando em casa
E lembrei da história de vovó
Que dizia que o filho que tem família
Pois nessa vida ele nunca fica só.

Só se for caminhando
O coração não deixa se esquecer
Do pai e da mãe que te abençoa
Pra nessa vida, um dia você vencer.

O Mestre serve pra te dar conselho
Puxar a orelha quando estiver errado
Ele diz que é melhor andar sozinho
Por muitas vezes, do que mal acompanhado.

E você, que está aí pelo mundo
A capoeira por você vai sempre olhar
Siga treinando e, por favor, não se esqueça
Você faz parte da família Abadá.

Vá com Deus e siga o seu caminho
O mundo inteiro você tem que viajar
Mas não se esqueça do que agora vou te dizer
Que a melhor viagem é na hora de voltar

English

Today I was thinking of home,
And remembered Grandmother’s story,
Saying that the child who has family,
In this life is never alone,

If you walk alone,
The heart will not let you forget,
The father and mother who blesses you,
To this life, one day you win,

The Mestre serves by giving you counsel,
Pulls your ear when you are wrong,
He says, it is better to walk alone,
Many times, than with bad company,

And you, who goes around the world,
The Capoeira always will look after you,
Keep on training and please do not forget,
You are part of the family Abadá,

Go with God and follow his path,
The entire world you have to travel,
But do not forget what I now say,
The best trip is the time of return.
