Rosalía de Castro is 176 years old today.
We also celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first edition of Cantares Gallegos (1863) by the Galician writer Rosalía de Castro on 24th February 2013. There is an official translation of Galician Songs by Erin Moure published by SmallStations Press.
This time we’ve chosen a poem from Follas Novas (1880) which has probably more to do with real times. We would like you to work with “A xustiza pola man”. You can listen to a recent jazz version by Abe Rábade and Guadi Galego or you may perhaps prefer Nao’s version or Aid’s rap one to get familiar with that poem. You may even watch a short film by Estíbaliz Espinosa and Sandra García. What about watching CPI VEDRA LIPDUB?
Click on the image below to get the original poem version. The final translation version will be posted by 16th April 2013. Try to have your translation ready by that date, please.
