"Cantiga de Folhas e Agulhas" is a composition born of close collaboration between Sangre de Muérdago and Judasz & Nahimana while in artist residency in Luxembourg in May 2021.

The piece was written, arranged and recorded live during the pass of 5 days. It is a musical interpretation of a lifetime in 5 chapters: Birth, Youth, Depression, Calm and Death.

CANTIGA DE FOLHAS E AGULHAS - Lyrics by Priscila Da Costa.

Abraçar este caminho de coraçao aberto
sem saber se sera o certo
A duvida sempre a minha frente.

O cantar do mocho, e do passarinho, o vento afinado, abranda o coraçao.

Esquecidas, desperdiçadas, brilhando no luar da noite. Essa melodia perdida, nunca desapereceu.

Lembro me do amor e das caricias,
lembro me do fumo doce do fogo
lembro-me do brilho do sol, da lua e das estrelas.

O cantar do mocho e do passarinho, o vento afinado jà leva a minha vida
que marcha com ele.

Adeus, adeus.

THE SONG OF LEAVES AND NEEDLES

To embrace this path with open-heart,
uncertain if it will be right one
and the doubt always in sight.

The singing of the owl and the little bird, the tuned up wind, softens up the heart.

Forgotten and disregarded but still shining in the moonlight sky, like a lost melody that never disappeared.

I remember love and tenderness,
I remember the sweet smoke of the Fire,
I remember the Sun, the Stars and the Moon.

The singing of the owl and the little bird, the tuned up wind softens up the heart, and holding hands with my life, together they walk away.

Goodbye, Goodbye.
....................................................................

CANTIGA DE FOLHAS E AGULHAS - The Chapters Poem by Pablo C. Ursusson

1. Birth. Initiation. The miracle of the Birch. ( 00:00 )

Oh white being of rebirth,
source of life and nurture,
show me the entrance into this journey.
My body receives the light,
the birdsongs clearer than ever in my ears.

2. Youth. Energy. The fire of the Ash. ( 4:00 )

Ash, stoic column of the forest,
that climbs boldly over the canopy,
let me be wild,
let me jump over the borders of my own endurance,
for that very sight will provide the calm I seek.

3. Depression. Into the dark. The journey through the Spruce forest. ( 6:40 )

Through somber paths I roam without destination,
my own darkness has taken over my perception.
Nobody understands.
Nobody wants to understand.
Alone.
Pain is poignant and pierces through my chest.
Oh if I only could find love.

4. Calm. Experience. The embrace of the Beech. ( 10:25 )

Resting at last, my sight is fuller,
achievements are more rewarding.
The hard work of the past sprouts all around.
The time to harvest is here.
Understanding the treasures of life is the most beautiful gift one can have,
no time to lose in loving our close ones.

5. The dance of Death. Acceptance. To walk the path of the Yew. ( 12:40 )

I dance towards you, oh Yew,
embrace my spirit with your branches, pierce me with your needles.
Guide me with your shadows to the side of my lost ones.
Adeus, adeus. I am ready.

Here's the cover art for "Cantiga de Folhas e Agulhas" by Alexandra Uppman. This brand new long composition written, arranged and recorded live during 5 days of artist residency in Luxembourg with Judasz & Nahimana will be presented tomorrow. Alexandra created this piece inspired by the surroundings of the cabin, and sitting in the same room with us as we composed, she drew dots and dots and more dots as we witnessed... ❤️🔥
Thank you Alexandra!

Here's the teaser video of our artist residency in Luxembourg with Judasz & Nahimana up on this platform as well.

Watch on Youtube: https://youtu.be/7p0Mtxck5PE

"In May 2021, members of Sangre de Muérdago and Judasz & Nahimana spent 5 days and 6 nights in Artists Residency in the Luxembourgish Woods. There they wrote and composed a musical piece called "Cantiga de Folhas e Agulhas", a 16+ minutes opus in which they travel through a lifetime in 5 chapters.
This is a little look into behind the scenes."

Full song and video to be published this next equinox.

Hi dear friends!
It's been rather silent from our side during the whole summer, but here are finally some fresh news with the teaser video of our work during our artist residency in Luxembourg.

What you can see and hear is a short behind-the-scenes of the time spent there. Next week the full video of the composition will be finally published with the equinox.

“Cantiga de Folhas e Agulhas” is a musical piece written, arranged and recorded live in the pass of 5 days. Both bands embraced a tight and close collaboration for this musical piece in which we travel through a life time in 5 chapters. Lyrics are written by Priscila Da Costa and the piece comes accompanied by a poem written by Pablo C. Ursusson through which we can see into deeper meaning and understanding of each one of the 5 chapters: Birth, Youth, Depression, Calm and Death.

Thank you to all the beautiful people that made this project possible. We entered Luxembourg not really knowing, and we left with a new family of beautiful kind souls. 🌱🔥🦉

See you soon, barbarians,

<3 <3
