    Info:

    This song, written in the 50s by Armando Zeferino Soares and popularized first by the angolan singer Bonga in the 70s and later Cesaria Evora, the barefoot Diva, in the early 90s speaks about the separation of two friends.

    One stayed in Cape Verde (São Nicolau in the song, one of Cape Verde's Islands) and the other one moved to São Tomé & Principe.

    São Tomé, just like Cape Verde, is a former portuguese colony. It's a group of islands located in front of Gabon. until the early 70s, many Cape Verdeans exiled to São Tomé to run away from the political and economical oppression of their country. Exodus was sometimes voluntary, some others forced. This song echoes slavery days and is a real anthem for all those driven to exile, far away from their home, far away from their families and friends.

    Lyrics (Cape Verdean Creole):
    Quem mostro’b
    Ess caminho longe?
    Quem mostro’b
    Ess caminho longe?
    Ess caminho Pa São Tomé

    Sodade sodade sodade
    Dess nha terra d’São Nicolau

    Extra verse & chorus (sung by Cedric Myton & written by Rod Anton):
    They've been taken far, far away
    They've been taken far, far away
    To a place called America
    They've been taken far, far away
    They've been taken far, far away
    To a place called Jamaica

    Sodade, Sodade, Sodade
    They miss their homeland Africa

    Si bo t’screve’m
    M’ta screve’b
    Si bo t’squece’m
    M’ta squece’b

    Até dia
    Ke bo volta

    Sodade sodade sodade
    Dess nha terra d’São Nicolau

    En Français :
    La chanson, écrite par Armando Zeferino Soares dans les années 50 et popularisée par l'Angolais Bonga dans les années 70, puis par Cesaria Evora ,"la diva aux pieds nus", dans les années 90, parle d’une séparation entre deux amis.

    L’un est resté au Cap-Vert (São Nicolau, dans la chanson, est l’une des îles du Cap-Vert) et l’autre est parti pour São Tomé e Principe.

    São Tomé est, comme le Cap-Vert, une ancienne colonie portugaise. C’est un archipel situé en face du Gabon. Jusqu’au début des années 70, de nombreux Cap-Verdiens se sont exilés à São Tomé pour échapper aux difficultés politiques et économiques de leur pays. L’exil était parfois volontaire, parfois forcé. Cette chanson fait donc écho au temps de l'esclavage et est un véritable hymne pour tous ceux poussés à l'exil, loin de chez eux, loin des leurs.

    Paroles:
    Qui t’a montré
    Ce long chemin
    Qui t’a montré
    Ce long chemin
    Ce chemin pour São Tomé?

    Sodade Sodade Sodade
    De ma terre de São Nicolau

    Couplet et refrain supplémentaires (chantés par Cedric Myton & écrits par Rod Anton):
    Ils ont été emmenés très très loin
    Ils ont été emmenés très très loin
    dans un endroit appelé Amérique
    Ils ont été emmenés très très loin
    Ils ont été emmenés très très loin
    dans un endroit appelé Jamaïque

    Sodade, Sodade, Sodade
    L'Afrique, leur terre mère, leur manque tellement

    Si tu m’écris
    Je t’écrirai
    Si tu m’oublies
    Je t’oublierai

    Jusqu’au jour
    De ton retour

    Sodade Sodade Sodade
    De ma terre de São Nicolau
