The Luar Na Lubre Connection

Luar na Lubre is one of the excelling folk based celtic bands in Galicia.
Through their official webpage www.luarnalubre.com they had the interesting idea to promote a lyric contest among their fans. They had a great response and almost 300 poems in galician, spanish or english arrived half of the world. My poem was the 1st winner and the group moulded the text with their music , which ast थे state in their website it is "frankly peculiar, which mix the american indians tribe-style with the waulking songs (laundry songs) from scotland or the seitura galician romances, those which were tuned during the wheat or rye mowing."
My poem is written down in galician, and evokes remebrances of celtic pagan believes in a clan´s lifetime.
It was include on the Album "Hai Un Paraiso" (There´s A Paradise) Track 03 and as a Remix Bonus in Track 12


Uah lúa, sagra lua
Uah branca, sagra lúa
Uah lúa, branca lúa
Uah sagra, branca lua
Collerei folla do visgo
É a noite de San Xoán
Brada o porco nos outeiros
Os carballos bruando están.
Bebe moza á meia noite
A frol da i’auga pura
Colle da herba preñadeira
Orballo para a fermosura
Alumean as fogueiras
As lembranzas do meu clan
Deses bravos q morreron
Por Kalaikia, seus irmáns

(English Version)

Uh, the moon, sacred moon,
Uh the white sacred moon,
Uh the moon, white moon,
Uh the sacred, white moon.
I’ll recollect the misteltoe leaf
It is St John´s Night
Roars the wild boar in the hills
The oaks are rocking by
Drink young maid at midnight
The first drop of pure water
Recollect the pregnancy herb
Dew for your fair beauty
The bonfires enlighten
Our clan rememberances
Of those braves who died
with their brothers,
In the name of Kalaikia,
