"Lots of things I have to say about each one of these lyrics: I explain more about them during the Sat Sangas and meditation retreats. My Lyrics are linked to myths, wisdom tales, inner reflections and existential feelings. Open your heart and take a break: stay with me for a moment to meditate”.

 

“Muitas coisas eu tenho para falar sobre cada uma dessas canções: eu costumo explicar durante meus Sat Sangas e retiros de meditação. Minhas letras são inspiradas em mitos, contos de sabedorias, filosofias e reflexões existenciais. Se você quer agarrar todos esses significados eu convido você a ir ao BLOG e mergulhar em minha alma. Abra seu coração e faça uma pausa: fique comigo por um momento para meditar”.

“Lyrics are a very important part of my music: Brazilian people are guardians of immaculate forests and rivers, wonderful seas and beaches, it´s a land where we can listen to the voice of the Nature claiming for help. We need to find a balance to sustain the continuity of mankind and in this sense, spiritual poetry is a remedy to cure and harmonize the body, mind and soul, helping us to preserve the Earth. Every place I go, each country, I see people suffering from the same pain: I write to help them to release this pain and to connect the inner heart with the real meaning of life. Sweet reflections are my song: my poetry has no creeds, no frontiers and no boundaries. From time to time, civilization has to change: I take my inspiration from the greatest mystical poets that I love, as Rumi, Kabir, Lalon Fakir,Tagore, Khayam, and specially from the universal wisdom stored in Brazilian folklore to reuse, recycle, and transform words into a rebirth of freedom”.

Letras

“As letras são parte muito importante da minha música: o povo brasileiro é guardião de imensas florestas, rios e mares imaculados e maravilhosas praias, onde podemos ouvir a voz da natureza pedindo ajuda. Precisamos encontrar um equilíbrio para sustentar a continuidade da humanidade e, nesse sentido, a poesia espiritual é um remédio para curar e harmonizar o corpo, a mente e alma, ajudando-nos a preservar a Terra. Todo lugar que eu vou, cada país, eu vejo pessoas que sofrem da mesma dor: eu escrevo para ajudá-los a liberar essa dor e para conectar o interior do coração com o verdadeiro significado da vida. Minha canção é feita de doces reflexões e a minha poesia não tem credos, sem fronteiras e sem limites. De tempos em tempos, a civilização tem de mudar: eu trago assim a inspiração dos maiores poetas místicos que eu amo, como Rumi, Kabir, Lalon Fakir, Tagore, Khayam, para reunir a sabedoria universal armazenada no folclore brasileiro. Reutilizo, reciclo e transformo palavras em um renascimento de liberdade”.

 

Translation of the Lyrics into English

CD Mantra II

 

Mergulhar

“Spiritual Dive”

 

Diving - tearing the veil

Stars in the sky

Starfishes in the sea

You and I

My eyes could not understand

So great darkness

So great brightness

You and I

Believing in god

Or being an atheist:

Breathing the same air

You and I

 

 

CD Mantra I

 

Meditações

“Meditation”

 

Someone is seeking for the real Self…

Another one is meditating…

Someone who never said "no" is saying it now, intending to help you…

The universal sound pulses within each song:

The cosmic dance is alive in every tiny grain of sand.

Someone is confused…

Another one is seeking for the “zen”…

A person who never said “amen” nevertheless can have a pure heart…

All things are ever-changing

In fact even the cosmic illusion

Will be explained one day…

 

 

CD OM Line

 

Miragem

“Mirage”

 

The silence is speaking trough the voice of the wind

Speaking dead words: but there is still the Spirit...

Our body is made by dust and by the voice of the Spirit

Our body loves to fall in love

A body is disintegrated at the end

The soul is free and enjoys while the people that remain keep crying

The Sun shines but there is a shadow

Desires and steps go following the rhythm

Oasis and mirages:

Only those who found the real meaning of the journey

These know that it´s better be wise like a very old tree

 

 

 

Pessoa Transcendente

Transcendental Person”

 

An ordinary person confused in an ordinary life:

(The reason to keep walking is those who we love).

Searching for the spiritual dimension, an ordinary person is the link between Earth and Heaven

"To have or not to have: that´s the point"

How we can get the right direction?

A song comes to hold our attention:

Father, son, brother, wife, everybody in union: breaking down the boundaries and facing the loneliness;

"To have or not to have: that´s the point"

How we can get the right direction?

 

 

Samsara

“Samsara”

I am completely detached of everything, matter and spirit;

That´s why I am going through the circumstances so free of weight on my conscience

I feel light and free

I became into a breeze in air...

In my meditation I go outside of the world

So far, so far away,

Seated in my room, I feel like a monk:

The face of Samsara is my own face... it´s your own face...

Light and free...

Melting in the air as a breeze...

 

 

OM Line

“OM Line”

 

A prayer is yearning and comes to us:

Travel to everywhere,

The cosmic illusion make you believe that what you see is the only reality, but reality is much more...

The prayer is coming from afar

Coming from yesterday, and from tomorrow

Nothing will put you into the right direction if you don´t make it right from now.

Magnetic prayer

Om translated by gigabites and websites

Mantras feeding our deep needs of Enlightenment

A transcendental hero emerges and teaches:

Everything hurts -- but it´s only a sensation...

Only love builds the reality

The painful experiences help us to understand both -- real and unreal

If you are playing life as a video-game, it´s easy to escape from death:

It´s only to press the key, and start a new game...

But the real sense in life to you keep in your hand the unity: a rose, a thorn and a flower bud.

Sílaba Sagrada

“Sacred Syllable”

 

Every word is a sacred syllable

Can be any language, and the meaning has to be: peace

Free fields, seeds and fruits

There is a Force ruling all the world

An infinite sound, source of all that exists

The infinite sound comes from the dust and will come forever as a grain of sand floating in the Ocean

A simple grain of sand who knows the final destiny

Look to the Sky, the constellations are small grains

Grain of faith will keep growing and consume all the bad things...

It´s just you have deep within your heart the sacred sound as a seed...

Sacred Syllable spoken in the Vedas and Parables

Extinct nature, future evolution

Attractive point awakes within our consciousness

Prayers leading to states of meditation

A simple grain of sand who knows the final destiny

Look to the Sky, the constellations are small grains

Grain of faith will keep growing and consume all the bad things...

It´s just you have deep within your heart the sacred sound as a seed...

 

 

Infinita Perfeição

“Infinite Perfection”

 

Everything that are at hand

Or even beyond the encounter of Heaven and Earth

Belongs to the Nature, that acts in silent gestures

The Nature doesn't make plans to beautify or uglify:

Only works to create Infinite Perfection.

The dimension of Infinite is the sum of my heart with your heart with the passion...

Sum of all things, and subtraction of all things

Never mind because sum and subtraction has no significance when we are talking about the Perfection of Love.

“Om Purnamadah Purnamidam Purnat Purnamudachyate

Purnasya Purnamadaya Purnameva Vashishate”

 

 

 

 

Labirinto CD

(Being produced and coming Soon!)

 

Vem dançar

"Come to the spiritual dance"

 

Gurus made of stones…

Ancient souls…

Few words…

Claps and parties,

Samba singers, 

All our hope:

Sweet and bitter remembrances are coming...

Come to the spiritual dance!

Poor and rich…

Whirling dervixes…

Fakirs and circus…

Whispers and screams:

Dance with me,

Eternal friend (the God of Love),

Everything will be said:

Nothing is silence

Come to the spiritual dance!

Get your ring

Into the dance;

Tower of Babel:

Origamis and children…

Princess and slums…

Ugly and beautiful…

Everything changes

When the soul is enchanted

Come to the spiritual dance!

 

Benvinda

"Welcome"

 

I want to listen to new sounds and words

I want a totally new land to go…

I want claps when I say: farewell!

I will be searching for knowledge, and knowledge will be waiting for me:

I want life to be intense and complete, full of love right now.

I want to be welcome: people will wait anxiously for me as for a magic night

I will spread my soul as perfume impossible to see

In this night I will make the silence as my dress

The shadow emerges at noon: where there is darkness also there is light

I don´t want to stay alone: like a single grape, I want to be in the bunch without having to fight for space, let me be wine in the future.

The wine is already alive within the grapes seed, before the wine is made,

In the same sense there is spiritual drunkenness in me, it´s the essence of the grape and its my essence…

I don´t want to be alone in my journey,

I want to kiss your mouth and so many others;

I want to be with the Sea, the Desert, sitting in the chair and dancing in a party

Everybody with me, in front of me, by my side;

All people with faith...

 

 

Espinho na Pata do Leão

"Thorn in a Lion Paw"

 

How it´s possible a so deep feeling remains locked inside the heart?

The fruit is stored within the seed

Pearls are stored within the shell

All pregnancy has a right time: then, be confidence and do what you have to do.

Thorns will torment the paw of the lion until there will be no resistance:

So, let me hold on tight the rose

How it´s possible a so deep feeling remains locked inside the heart?

Cancer is a constellation in the Sky, and in the Ocean there is also the crab.

Phases of moon and tides really know about parturition days

All pregnancy has a right time: then, be confident and do what you have to do.

Thorns will torment the paw of the lion until there will be no resistance:

So, let me hold on tight the rose

 

 

Falcão

"Hawk"

 

Imagine a sword so good to cut the wings of a hawk during the diving in the air:

Spreading a sweet smell of sandalwood, like a bloody intoxication

Changing the hawk direction, making he feel powerful

The wounds will help him to awake, but he will still remain as the best hunter

Not even the hawk is free: he lives to attack

Free is the bright of the sword shining: it doesn´t need to kill because can blind the enemy

 

 

Cascavel

"Rattlesnake"

Lyrics by Daniela Zappi

Melody by Ana Rita Simonka

 

Not even the fierce rattlesnake is free: It´s a prisoner of the sound of the rattle

Its skin is hard and cut the soil into pieces

Rocks shining like crystals

Not even the fierce rattlesnake has freedom: the sound of the rattle warns us she is coming

Free is the silence...

 

 

Labirinto

"Labyrinths"

Labyrinths, games, oracles: seeds of space and time

Cry and laugh,

Hands and eyes -- are like sinners who make the life short in a so huge world...

I have nothing, I came from nowhere, I´m just arriving

I am not alone: there is another one who sees me like he sees herself

I don´t know where I came from, but I know that I can be the king of road

The only remembrance I have is love…

No entrance, no exit, like a slug walking on the blade

Wonderful nights and mornings teaching you how to be aware,

Life is a game, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I have nothing, I came from nowhere, I´m just arriving

I am not alone: there is another one who sees me like he sees herself

I don´t know where I am from, but I know that I can be the king of the road

The only remembrance I have is love…

 

 

Irmandade

"Broterhood"

 

I call my friends to a gathering to announce that we are out of danger:

We seat together to remember battles and to sing songs of victory

Churches with statues and static saints, streets with homes and cars

Whips beating in the slaves are like accounts in the banks and money troubles

Every soul is crying for a revolution

Bread, love and home - I need and I beg - and if I have, I share

Let´s to celebrate in this universe that we don´t comprehend

Fragments of mantras and prayers, backpacks, tents and travels

I feel the shiver in my skin: I am confused if it´s the Sahara heat, or if it's the coldness of the Ocean

I can be with you, but first of all, I need to feel good with myself

You don´t need to despair – and I need to be awake to give you my best

My best friend is crying but he is a tough guy.

My best friend overcomes the evil carma:
