ÑEMITŶ Letra/Lyrics: CARLOS FEDERICO ABENTE Música/Music: JOSÉ ASUNCIÓN FLORES Jahypýi ko yvy tome’ê hi’a Ñamboapy ko sapukái yvytu vevére ñahendu iñe’ê ñande kóga purahéi. Ko’ê pytãngy, guyraita oñe’ê ndaipóri mba’e mbyasy kuarahy omimbi, jasy opukavy Oso mboriahu apytĩ. Ñañemitŷ, taheñói yvy ári tory tojope kuarahy avatity tomyasãi mandyju panambi. Ñañemitŷ tahory ñande kéra yvoty toĝuahê tetãygua araite topu’ã Paraguay. Petŷ ha ka’a, manduvi ha yva maymáva ty’ái repy Takuare’êndýre mboriahueta oñohê hi’upyrã. Topa ñembyahýi, joayhu taheñói topu’ã ñane retã Ñañombyatypa ha jasapukái vy’ápe che retãygua. A cultivar, que renazca en la tierra el amor que maduren las mieses al sol que haya campos de blanco algodón A cultivar, que en los sueños florezca el ideal que haya el día de la redención: elevar la nación. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: THE SOWN LAND (ÑEMITŶ) Translation into English: Víctor L. Spezzini Let’s water the land so it may fruit Let our cries unite through the wind may we hear the voice that sings from our sown land. During the rosy sunrise many birds sing not a single malaise exists the sun shines, the moon laughs the poor are liberated. Let’s cultivate may joy germinate across the land may the sun warm the cornfield may the butterfly cover it all in cotton. Let’s cultivate to brighten our flowering dream may the people’s day arrive may Paraguay arise. Tobacco and yerba mate, peanuts and fruits from the value of someone’s sweat In the cane fields many of the poor get to eat. Let the hunger end may the love be germinated, may our homeland rise up Let’s unite and shout with joy my people. Let’s cultivate, in the land may the love be reborn let the grain be matured by the sun let there be fields full of white cotton Let’s cultivate, that in our dreams the ideal may flower that the day of emancipation shall arrive: uplift this nation. ::::::::::::::::::::::: THE SOWN LAND (ÑEMITŶ) Translation into Bird Language: Víctor L.

Now all the woods are waking, The sun is rising high Wake up now Get up now Before the dew is dry

about

Seasonal Séance is a rekindling of seasonal awareness & celebration through sonic folk craft in the Southeastern United States. Herein are personal and collective interpretations of timely folk songs, sonic evocations of ancient rites, calls for cultivation and growth, communications with the spirits of the season, holiday music for astronomical observances. The first volume is a collection of music made for the beginning of Spring on the occasion of the Vernal Equinox. Throw your windows wide and let it pour over the plants and planets all around you!

The Seasonal Séance series will continue with volumes being released on each equinox & solstice this year, providing the soundtrack to your own seasonal rites and gatherings. Stay tuned!
