Canción para dormir a un niño

(Beatriz Pichi Malén)

Canción para dormir a un niño

"Canción para dormir a un niño" ["Song to make a baby sleep"] is one of the most moving tracks on the album "Plata", released in 2000 by the Argentinean Mapuche artist Beatriz Pichi Malén.

    Ngümay ta püñen may, ngümay ta püñen may.
    Küpangün ngürü may, küpangün ngürü may.
    Xapi ta püñen may, umawtumün ngürü may.
    Xa pita püñen may, amutungün ngürü may.
    Küpay ta ngürü may, umawtumün ngürü may.
    Umawtumün püñen may.
    Xapi ta püñen may, xapi ta püñen may.
    Xapi ta püñen may, xapi ta püñen may


    [The children cry, the children cry.
    The foxes come, the foxes come.
    The children are frightened, get away foxes.
    The foxes came, go to sleep foxes.
    Go to sleep, children.
    The children are frightened, the children are frightened,
    the children are frightened, the children are frightened...].
