Oliveiras

Stories about how Magda´s father seems to have the same roots as the ancient olive trees from his native region. About how the inhabitants and the trees of this region were left behind without a voice and about how Magda’s roots have been pulling her since she left her birthplace.

Camiel ft. Magda Mendes – Finisterra

Once I arrive there
We´ll go south, our place
Which is always there
Which never ends
The earth finishes
The sea begins
This is enough for us

My village is not a real village… We don’t have a bell tower nor a bandstand nor a Main Street. One of these days you should visit my village so you´d see a village that is no village.
