Steemit OpenMic Week 101 - @minuetoacademy - Duerme Negrito (Cover)

in #openmic2 years ago (edited)

¡Saludos Steemeros! Para mi entrada del Steemit OpenMic Semana 101 he preparado un arreglo del tema "Duerme Negrito"; una canción de cuna que forma parte del folklore latinoamericano.

Duerme Negrito

Folklore

Duerme, duerme negrito,
Que tu mama está en el campo, negrito…

Duerme, duerme mobila,
Que tu mama está en el campo, mobila…

Te va a traé codornices para ti,
Te va a traé rica fruta para ti,
Te va a traé carne de cerdo para ti.
Te va a traé muchas cosas para ti.
Y si negro no se duerme,
Viene diablo blanco y ¡zas!

Le come la patita,
¡Chicapumba, chicapumba, apumba, chicapun…!

Duerme, duerme negrito,
Que tu mama está en el campo, negrito…

Trabajando si,
Trabajando duramente, trabajando sí,
Trabajando y va de luto, trabajando sí,
Trabajando y no le pagan, trabajando sí,
Trabajando y va tosiendo, trabajando sí,
Trabajando y va de luto, trabajando sí,
Pa’l negrito chiquitito, pa’l negrito sí,
Trabajando sí, trabajando sí...

Duerme, duerme negrito,
Que tu mama está en el campo, negrito,
Negrito, negrito...

Atahualpa Yupanqui es quien presenta esta canción por primera vez en los medios, por ello muchos le atribuirían la autoría de la misma, pero bien aclaró Yupanqui:

"Mucha gente me la adjudica. Honor hubiera sido para mí que fuera mía, pero no lo es. Es mía en cuanto a lo que tenga de sensibilidad mi corazón de cosas receptivas. Es un tema anónimo, plural, folclórico. Es de ellos: de la gente morena de esa zona, frontera Venezuela-Colombia"

"Duerme Negrito" No es sólo una canción de cuna, es también una canción de protesta, donde se visibiliza las carencias y la explotación de los afro-descendientes, del proletariado... La letra de la canción nos narra que "El Negrito" era cuidado por alguien que le decía:

"Te va a traer codornices para ti,
Te va a traer rica fruta para ti,
Te va a traer carne de cerdo para ti,
Te va a traer muchas cosas para ti"

Estas eran cosas con la que los jornaleros del cacao de aquél entonces y los pobres de ahora, sueñan... Esas palabras eran calma y consuelo para la mente de aquél negrito chiquitico, que quizás no podía dormir pensando en su madre, a la que tanto quería pero poco veía... O tal vez no podía conciliar el sueño por el hambre que sentía su cuerpo y su alma... En todo caso el arrullo intentaba calmar lo que la humanidad con sus iniquidades y contradicciones despertaba en aquel niño de ayer pero también de hoy...

Hablar de "Duerme Negrito" es, entre otras cosas, recordar a Mercedes Sosa, que nos regaló una de las versiones más hermosas que se haya hecho de este tema. Aquí les dejo un enlace para que disfruten del arte y la magia de la eterna Mercedes Sosa

Greetings Steemeros! For my Steemit OpenMic Week 101 entry I have prepared an arrangement of the theme "Sleep Negrito"; a lullaby that is part of Latin American folklore.

Duerme Negrito

Folklore

Sleep, sleep black,
That your mom is in the field, bold ...

Sleep, sleep mobila,
That your mother is in the field, mobila ... *

I'll bring you quail for you,
It's going to bring you rich fruit for you,
I'll bring you pork for you.
I will bring you many things for you.
And if black does not fall asleep,
White devil comes and wham!

He eats the little leg,
Chicapumba, chicapumba, apumba, chicapun ...!

Sleep, sleep black,
That your mom is in the field, bold ...

Working yes,
Working hard, working yes,
Working and going to mourning, working yes,
Working and not paying, working yes,
Working and going coughing, working yes,
Working and going to mourning, working yes,
Pa'l negrito chiquitito, pa'l negrito yes,
Working yes, working yes ...

Sleep, sleep black,
That your mom is in the field, bold,
Negrito, negrito ...

Atahualpa Yupanqui is the one who presents this song for the first time in the media, so many would attribute the authorship of it, but Yupanqui clarified:

"Many people give it to me, Honor would have been for me to be mine, but it is not, it is mine in terms of what my heart has of sensitive things, it is an anonymous, plural, folkloric theme. : from the dark people of that area, Venezuela-Colombia border "

"Sleep Negrito" It's not just a lullaby, it's also a song of protest, where the deficiencies and the exploitation of Afro-descendants, of the proletariat are visible ... The lyrics of the song tell us that "El Negrito" He was taken care of by someone who told him:

"It's going to bring quail for you,
It will bring you rich fruit for you,
It's going to bring you pork for you,
It will bring you many things for you "

These were things with which the cacao workers of that time and the poor now dream ... Those words were calm and comfort for the mind of that little black boy, who perhaps could not sleep thinking about his mother, whom In fact, the lullaby was trying to calm down what humanity, with its iniquities and contradictions, aroused in that child of yesterday but also today ...

Speaking of "Sleep Negrito" is, among other things, remember Mercedes Sosa, who gave us one of the most beautiful versions that has been made of this subject. Here is a link for you to enjoy the art and magic of the eternal Mercedes Sosa
