Good Monday Morning with Novalima

Big week this week. I thought I would start things out with this piece that I found on NeoGriot.

Novalima is an Afro-Peruvian group. This song, like an incantation or prayer, is called “Coba Guarango,” and the lyrics go like this:

Quema la vida, quema la muerte
BURN LIFE, BURN THE DEATH
Mentira quema la verdad
LIES BURN INDEED
Quema el amor, quema el dolor
BURNS LOVE, BURNS GRIEF
Quema la vela, quema candela
BURN THE CANDLE, BURNING FLARE
Quema la sangre, quema mis venas
BURNS MY BLOOD, BURNING MY VEINS
Quema la tierra, quema candela
BURNS THE EARTH, BURNING FLARE
Quema que quema, quema candela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME
Quema que quema, quema candela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME
Quema la sangre, quema mis venas…
BURNS MY BLOOD, BURNING MY VEINS
Coba Coba (3x)
Coba Guarango
Coba, Coba, Coba Guarango (2x)

Quema que quema, quema candela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME
Quema que quema, quema la vela
BURN AND BURN, BURN THE CANDLE
Que quema, quema, quema candela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME
Quema que quema, quema candela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME

Coba, Coba, Coba Guarango (2x)
Quema la sangre, quema mis venas
BURNS MY BLOOD, BURNING MY VEINS
Quema que quema, quema candela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME
Quema la vida, quema la muerte
BURNS LIFE, BURNS DEATH
Quema que quema, quema la vela
BURN AND BURN, BURNING FLAME
Quema lo cierto, quema el engaño
BURNS THE TRUTH, BURNS THE DECEIT
Quema, que quema la verdad.
BURNS AND BURNS TO TELL THE TRUTH!
Quema, quema, quema….
BURN, BURN, BURN
Quema la vida, quema la muerte…
BURN LIFE, BURN DEATH

Enjoy. Appreciate that you’re still here.
