In the Capoeira Connection Podcast EP 9, we sit down to speak with Contra Mestre Monkey (Author of Minha Varanda) via skype. “In order for people to have a deeper understanding of the lyrics to this song, I have come here to offer a translation of the lyrics myself…”
– Contra Mestre Monkey
“Minha Varanda…” – Refers to my home, the place I want to conquer, working with Capoeira.
“Meu Chapeu de Palha…” – Relates to chilling times after this conquest, I wish to have myself, my home.
“Minha Massape…” – Means the mud, hard to cross through, that I shall not forget, the hard times
