Parole di Hakim Jami, contrabbassista jazz afroamericano
Musica di Gary Bartz, con la sua formazione di allora, la NTU Troop
Nell’album intitolato “Harlem Bush Music - Uhuru”

Harlem Bush Music - Uhuru

Gary Bartz è un grandissimo sassofonista contralto e clarinettista che a partire dal 1967 ha suonato con quasi tutti i grandi del jazz. La sua cifra stilistica è costituita da una combinazione di soul, funk, African music, hard bop e avant-garde jazz. Negli anni 70 è stato assai vicino ai movimenti per i diritti degli afroamericani e contro la guerra in Vietnam.



E scrivere e, ancor più, interpretare quanto segue, nel 1971 poteva essere molto pericoloso, specie se non eri famoso come Jane Fonda, la quale nel 1972, in visita ad Hanoi, poteva permettersi di accompagnarsi personalmente a soldati nordvietnamiti su di un battello dotato di contraerea... Una foto che fece ovviamente scalpore negli USA...



La descrizione del Vietcong non corrisponde solo a quella di un qualunque combattente nordvietnamita ma a quella del Vietcong per antonomasia, Ho Chi Minh.
Little old man walking through the jungle, the Vietcong
Little old man brave and fearless warrior, the Vietcong
Twenty years of fighting for his homeland, the Vietcong
He won't give up the rights of home for no man, the Vietcong
Why don't all you foreigners leave them folks alone?
Pack up all your guns, go home where you belong!

Twenty years of fighting for his homeland, the Vietcong
He won't give up the rights of home for no man, the Vietcong

Little old man walking through the jungle, the Vietcong
Little old man brave and fearless warrior, the Vietcong
Twenty years of fighting for his homeland, the Vietcong
He won't give up the rights of home for no man, the Vietcong
Why don't all you foreigners leave them folks alone?
Pack up all your guns, go home where you belong!

Twenty years of fighting for his homeland, the Vietcong
He won't give up the rights of home for no man, the Vietcong

Little old man walking through the jungle, the Vietcong
Little old man brave and fearless warrior, the Vietcong
Twenty years of fighting for his homeland, the Vietcong
He won't give up the rights of home for no man, the Vietcong
Why don't all you foreigners leave them folks alone?
Pack up all your guns, go home where you belong!

Twenty years of fighting for his homeland, the Vietcong
He won't give up the rights of home for no man, the Vietcong
The Vietcong
The Vietcong
