At the end of January, a Portguese poet, Alice Neto de Sousa appeared on RTP Africa and recited a poem. I just heard it the other day on a podcast and was blown away by the cadence of her delivery as well as treatment of the topic. The simple question that sets the stage is a child asking a teacher “Que raio é um lápis cor de pele?”
The delivery is slow at first, but gets into a rapid-fire pace. I couldn’t keep up with it, or anything even close, but I eventually tracked down this page which has the words, and at the bottom the video of her recitation. Her delivery is amazing and I encourage you to watch her.
So here is my question. In the ultimate paragraph there’s a line, Mas Muxima Uamiê está sofrendo, and I have found a song, “Muxima Uamiê” and a relevant line in the song. But I’d like to know if anyone knows more about that song, Muxima Uamiê or anything else that would give me some insight to that reference.
