Mai fali é, traditional song from Timor

This beautiful, traditional children’s song from the island of Timor formed part of a concert focusing on the strong influence of Portuguese musical culture in Asia and South American over many centuries. The song’s text, a combination of Portuguese and a local language, is a good reflection of these cultural exchanges. The bare and intimate version of Sete Lágrimas enhances the melodic line, which contains a certain exotic aura.
