La raiz

la música de chile se origina en su tierra y historia
cada canción una flor
que suena colores a los oídos
pero la raíz está profundamente abajo
en la misma tierra roja-café que alimenta los litres
la música nace del pueblo
que nace de la tierra
que llena con semillas
semillas libres del pueblo
donde nace la música
bailamos al música arriba del suelo
pero la raíz está profundamente abajo
los terremotos políticos
se resquebrajan la tierra
en la lucha de mamas y papas
que llenan la raíz con historia
para que crezca la música
en una flor que suena nuevos colores a los oídos
que nos deja bailar

——

the music of Chile is rooted in its earth and history
every song a flower
that rings colors to the ears
but the root is deep below
in the same red-brown earth that feeds the litres
the music is born from the pueblo
which is born from the earth
which fills with seeds
free seeds of the pueblo
where the music is born
we dance to music above the ground
but the root is deeply below
political earthquakes
crack the earth
in the struggle of mothers and fathers
who fill the root with history
so that the music grows
in a flower that rings new colors to the ears
that allows us to dance
