Listen to “Lama”, the new release from Barbara Schucko [With Translation]

“Lama” is the new lovely piece from Barbara Schucko. The song is quite smooth and poetic and was necessitated by the collapse of a dam in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It was picked as a theme soundtrack for “Mud Refugees“, a cultural documentary. The Brazilian singer co-directed the film.

Colombian visual artist Paula Bast created the artwork for this beautiful song. Listen to “Lama”.

Below is a lyric translation from Portuguese.

Come closer, love 
Because today my soul is crying 
Come closer, love 
Because today my soul is crying 

Love, I can’t wait 
For these bad times to go away 
There are people trying to smile behind their 
hands dirty with guilt 
They’re so light, they have no shame. 
(“Cara de pau”, expression that means wood face. 
We use it when someone does something 
intentionally even though they know it is morally 
or ethically incorrect.) 

Love, the river passed 
The land slid, started to become mud 
And all the life that was sculpted in a post card 
Suffocate in these bad men’s greed 

Come closer, love 
Because today my soul is crying 
Come closer, love 
Because today my soul is crying 

Love, I can’t wait 
For the silence to cease and 
For the chest that sings and that cries tears of 
land and iron to 
Lift us up, and shout, and put everything into 
place 

Come closer, love 
Because today my soul is crying
