Much appreciation to all the talented people at the music circles of March and April, 2021, in San Sebastian, Oaxaca.

Please note that I will be adding more music on this same post whenever I get good internet connection available to upload the rest of the songs.

Toda Mi Vida (All My Life)

He venido aquí buscando flores

He venido aquí buscando cantos

Busco mariposas de obsidiana

Busco mariposas de mil colores

I have come here looking for flowers

I have come here looking for songs

I look for obsidiana butterflies

I look for butterflies of a thousand colors

Hey ana na ya na na na

Hey hey ho

Toda mi vida yo te he buscado

Y en este fuego yo te he encontrado

All my life I have been looking for you

And in this fire I have found you

Kai Kai Kai

Kai Kai Kai

Yemanya olodo

Kai Kai kai

Asesu olodo

Para gogo oromi

Parar gogo yemanya

Para gogo oromi

Parar gogo yemanya



Mi Amada Tonantzin (My Beloved Tonantzin)

Mi amada Tonantzin te vengo a decir

Que te amo deveras, soy parte de ti

Te damos las gracias por el maíz

Las flores, los frutos y todo de ti

The Light Gets In

Forget your perfect offering

Just ring the bell that still can ring

There is a crack in everything

That’s how

The light

Gets in

That’s how the light gets in

Olvida tu perfecta ofrenda

Sólo toca el timbre que sí suena

Hay una grieta en todo

Y así

La luz


Y así la luz entra

Ancestors Sky People (Ancestros En El Cielo)

Ancestors sky people

All here today

Hear my heart song

Hear my respect

Hear my love

Hear my grateful tears fall

I am truly blessed

You are truly blessed

We are truly blessed

Ancestras en el cielo

Todas aquí

Les canto desde el corazón

Con mi respeto

Y mi amor

Gracias por verme llorar

Y mi bendición

Y tu bendición

Nuestra bendición


Djigbo a dina hey

Hey ya dina, heya dina ho

Djigbo a gara hey

Hey ya gara, heya gara ho


Adzjina hey

Adzjina ho
