Petit pays

[2013]
Parole e musica di Gaël Faye (1982-), rapper franco-ruandese, nato in Burundi, di padre francese e madre rifugiata ruandese, di etnia tutsi. Nel 1993 la famiglia riparò in Francia a seguito dell’acutizzarsi della guerra civile in Burundi, dopo la deposizione e l’assassinio del presidente hutu Melchior Ndadaye da parte di alcuni ufficili di etnia tutsi.
Nell’album intitolato “Pili Pili sur un Croissant au Beurre”
Testo trovato su Genius

Il ritornello - credo sia in kirundi, lingua del Burundi, o in kinyarwanda, molto simile, parlata in Ruanda - significa “Piccolo paese, grande paese, sei stato ferito, hai sofferto ma la sofferenza non ti ha sconfitto, piccolo paese, grande paese.”

“Les hommes sont bêtes, l'Afrique est belle, fais pas l'erreur de la haïr”, così Gaël Faye in un’altra sua canzone, “Président”

La canzone è indirizzata al Burundi, dove Gaël Faye trascorse la sua infanzia,... (Continues)

Papaoutai

(2013)
Album Racine carrée

Nel video viene mostrato un bambino che cerca di interagire con il padre (interpretato da Stromae) che siede su una poltrona con un'espressione che ricorda quella di un manichino mentre gli altri bambini danzano insieme ai propri padri. Nel finale il bambino si siede a fianco del padre assumendo la stessa rigida posizione. Il video ha ricevuto oltre 300 milioni di visualizzazioni ed è anche il video in lingua francese più visto di sempre su YouTube.

Il controverso significato del video rimase nascosto fino a quando Stromae in un'intervista dichiara che il video è una sorta di interpretazione della sua infanzia vissuta in mancanza del padre ucciso nel genocidio del Ruanda.

Parce qu'on vient de loin

(2002)
dall'album omonimo

Corneille è un cantante di r'n'b nato in Germania originario del Rwanda. Nel 1994 ha 17 anni. La madre è hutu e il padre tutsi. Un gruppo armato entra nella casa di famiglia e uccide i suoi genitori, i fratelli e le sorelle. Corneille assiste al massacro, sopravvive nascondendosi dietro a un divano. Fugge in Zaire, a due giorni di cammino e trova rifugio presso una coppia tedesca amica dei genitori.

Da questa storia tragica, si può ben capire il perché dell'invito a vivere ogni giorno come se fosse l'ultimo, nella canzone che dà il titolo al suo primo album.

This is not a history lesson. We're not historians. We're songwriters. And anyway... how the hell is anybody going to explain the systematic state sponsored slaughter of close to a million people with a handful of songs? We're not.

Truth is, there is no explanation for the Rwandan genocide. What there is in abundance, however, is ignorance. If these songs make just one person dig a little deeper, then we've made our money back, so to speak. We've touched upon specific pieces of the horror, but don't even pretend to be able to understand it from the Rwandan point of view. We're observers from afar. Interested, heartbroken observers....but merely observers nonetheless. Please... (Continues)

Rwanda

Dall'album "Tra I Fuochi In Mezzo Al Cielo" del 2005.

“Ero ammutolita, non riuscivo a pensare neanche al futuro più immediato. Questo per una serie di ragioni: non solo perché avevo visto scene agghiaccianti, ma per l’indifferenza, denunciata nel film, dell’Occidente e di tutto il mondo rispetto a quel che accadeva”. Paola Turci la spiega così l’ispirazione che l’ha portata “nel giro di mezz’ora” a comporre Rwanda, pezzo di punta dell'album Tra i fuochi in mezzo al cielo (2005).

Con questa canzone, la cantautrice romana ha vinto la 4^ edizione del "Premio Amnesty Italia", il riconoscimento indetto dalla sezione italiana di Amnesty International e da Voci per la Libertà assegnato ogni anno al brano che meglio affronta il tema dei diritti umani.
Un rock istintivo e spigoloso.
Un brano nel quale l’immediatezza della composizione si mostra quasi chiara nell’armonia appuntita e nella voce... (Continues)
