Africa Ê


Song Lyrics


History and sentiment behind song

The song references Malê which was the name given to African Muslims in Brazil. They were famous for initiating the Malê Revolt in 1835, a rebellion that, although defeated by the Brazilian cavalry, contributed to the eventual abolition of the slave trade. The song calls on the people of Angola, which was a former Portuguese colony in the south west of Africa.
