NEGRA CONGO - Antonio Llanos 2002/GOYITA - Rafael Tufiño

THE SOURCE - Antonio Llanos
 
Thru the mist of life's violet haze,
In the silence of my mind, I walk.
I am ever watchful of you, my Carabali.
My Congo, I am mother woman, dark harvest, pure molasses.
 
My Antillian Yambomboro, my hand will guide you as you grow.
My milk, my love, my embrace, my hand, my touch
-----grow strong my Congo.
 
For you are Loiza my black one, I feed you with my soul.
Because of God I am your life source
From my womb you sprang forth
and thru me my Congo, you must pass. 
 
 
LA FUENTE - Antonio Llanos
 
Entre neblinas y paños de humo violeta
Camino en el silencio de mi mente
Ojo fijo, ojo claro, ojo Carabali
Mi Congo, lo mundo soy
Melaza dulce.....ZAFRA!!!...
 
Yambomboro Antillano, mi mano sobre tu ser
Tu e' Loiza, cara negra, paso firme
Te di vida, te sostengo,
Yo soy tu fuente, y como de mi vientre....vienes
Por mi, Negro Congo, pasaras.
