Song Lyrics

Ê Dandara

Ê Dandara ê


Ê Dandara

Ê Dandara ê


Dandara foi mulher guerreira

No quilombo se refugiou

Conheceu Zumbi dos Palmares

E logo se apaixonou


(Coro)


Com Zumbi ela teve três filhos

No quilombo ela foi a rainha

Sua história ficou esquecida

Por muito tempo e ninguém não sabia


(Coro)


Domingo Jorge velho

Junto com seu bando

Os mocambos queimou

Atacando o povo quilombola

Dandara lutando ele a capturou


(Coro)


Mil seiscentos e noventa e quatro

Dandara se suicidou

De jogando de uma pedreira

Mas a escravidão ela não se entregou


(Coro)


Mil seiscentos e noventa e cinco

Foi a vez do grande rei Zumbi

Depois da morte encontrou com Dandara

Em um paraíso eles vivem felizes

Ê Dandara ê


Dandara was a warrior woman

In the quilombo he took refuge

Met Zumbi dos Palmares

And soon fell in love


(Chorus)


With Zumbi she had three children

In the quilombo she was the Queen

Your story is forgotten

For a long time and no one did not know


(Chorus)


Old Domingo Jorge

Together with his pack

The mocambos burned

Attacking the quilombola people

Dandara fighting he captured her


(Chorus)


One thousand six hundred and ninety-four

Dandara committed suicide

Playing from a quarry

But to slavery she did not surrender


(Chorus)


One thousand six hundred and ninety-five

It was the turn of the great Zumbi king

After death he met Dandara

In a paradise they live happily
