Isabella – HK movie 19/20 Fado music is “Ó Gente da Minha Terra” by Mariza


“Ó Gente da Minha Terra” by Mariza brings back memories of Amalia Rodriguez fado.  The movie Isabella has a beautiful soundtrack portrait of the cultural richness of Macao 

É meu e vosso este fado
Destino que nos amarra
Por mais que seja negado
Às cordas de uma guitarra

Sempre que se ouve o gemido
De uma guitarra a cantar
Fica-se logo perdido
Com vontade de chorar

Ó gente da minha terra
Agora é que eu percebi
Esta tristeza que trago
Foi de vós que a recebi

E pareceria ternura
Se eu me deixasse embalar
Era maior a amargura
Menos triste o meu cantar

Ó gente da minha terra
Agora é que eu percebi
Esta tristeza que trago
Foi de vós que a recebi

This “fado” (fate) is mine and yours
Destiny that binds us
However it is denied
At the strings of a guitar

Whenever you hear the wail
of a singing guitar 
You’re instantly lost
and feeling like crying

Oh, People of my land
Now I realized
This sadness that I bring
Was from you that I received it

And seemed like kindness
If I had let me pack
The bitterness would be greater
And less sad my singing would be

Oh; People of my land
Now I realized
This sadness that I bring
Was from you that I received it

(Solo)

Oh, People of my land
Now I realized
This sadness that I bring
Was from you that I received it
