Anmari Mëtsa Yabi Wili

duration: 60’, in the dark, always 30' after sunset

One basis and orientation point of the composition for the PerformanceDrives is a song from the Peruvian Andes, which the composer heard for the first time in the Peruvian jungle, at that moment when she received her middle name Mëtsa Yabi. The momentum and the song cover the basic concepts of the project theme such as origin, freedom, peace, love, joy. On the one hand, the text exudes a lot of sadness, on the other hand, the combination of the melody and harmonies with the simple heavy drum rhythms provoke energetic ecstasy of joy and exuberance. The connection of these two opposing forces are typical for this style of music, called Sikuri.

DESDE LEJOS HE VENIDO 

TRAYENDOTE MUCHAS FLORES

SOLO POR QUERERTE

TRAYENDOTE MUCHAS FLORES

CRUZANDO VALLES Y MONTES 

POR ESTE PUEBLO TAN QUERIDO

 

MUCHO TIEMPO ME ALEJADO

DE MI KALUYO QUERIDO 

PARA OLVIDARTE

EN VANO HA SIDO MI AUSENCIA

YO NO HE PODIDO OLVIDARTE

SOLO HE APRENDIDO A QUERERTE

 

CUANDO DOBLEN LAS CAMPANAS

NO PREGUNTES QUIÉN HA MUERTO

QUE MUY BIEN LO SABES

A MUERTO QUIÉN TE HA QUERIDO

HA MUERTO QUIÉN TE HA ADORADO

DULCE PALOMA DE MI VIDA

FROM FAR I CAME

BRINGING YOU LOTS OF FLOWERS

ONLY LOVING YOU

BRINGING YOU LOTS OF FLOWERS

CROSSING VALLEYS AND MOUNTAINS

FOR THIS SO MUCH BELOVED HAMLET

 

 MUCH OF TIME I WAS FAR

FROM MY BELOVED HAMLET

TO FORGET YOU

IN VAIN WAS MY ABSENCE

I COULDN’T FORGET YOU

ONLY I HAVE LEARNED TO LOVE YOU

 

WHEN THE BELLS ARE RINGING

DON’T ASK WHO HAS PASSED AWAY

'CAUSE VERY WELL YOU KNOW

WHO HAS LOVED YOU HAS PASSED AWAY

WHO HAS ADORED YOU HAS PASSED AWAY

SWEET DOVE OF MY LIFE

The connection between contemporary art and pop culture is interesting every year, as we reach a very broad audience, some of whom just want to sit down at the riversides, some who have come from far away, and others who would normally go to sleep at that time, and then just do go to the window again so as not to miss this fine spectacle.
