Maracangalha

I have tried to find Mestre Curió’s music to buy on the internet – I love this album so much I’d like to show my appreciation by buying it. No luck so far. If anyone knows of anywhere I can purchase it from, let me know! I can only find it on YouTube or as a free downloadable – this CD was recorded in 1997 in Mexico City.

Maracangalha ê ê
Maracangalha ê á
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
Olha lá Maracangalha – Look there Maracangalha
Terra grande de valour – Great land of value
A terra da capoeira – Land of capoeira
Onde Besouro andou – Where Besouro roamed
Maracangalha
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
Olha lá Maracangalha – Look there Maracangalha
Terra boa hospitaleira – Good hospitable land
A terra dos engenhos – Land of processing plants (for sugar cane)
Onde nasceu a capoeira – Where capoeira was born
Maracangalha
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
Olha lá Maracangalha
Terra boa de tradição – Good land of tradition
Todos com o uniforme branco – Everyone with white uniform
Com o seu chapeu na mão – With their hats on their hands
Maracangalha
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
Olha lá Maracangalha
De você tenho valor – From you I got my values
Hoje sei a capoeira – today I know capoeira
Aprendi com meu avô – I learned with my grandfather
Maracangalha
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
Olha lá Maracangalha
Que teve um terror – There was a terror
A terra da capoeira – Land of capoeira
Onde meu pai também andou – Where my father also roamed
Maracangalha
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
Olha lá Maracangalha
De você eu tenho dó – I feel sorry for you
Jogo essa capoeira – I play this capoeira
Do Brasil a Maceió – From Brazil to Maceió
Maracangalha
MARACANGALHA Ê Ê
MARACANGALHA Ê Á
