INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Every 25th November we commemorate “No Violence against Woman Day”.

This year we are going to talk about Mirima Makeba, as well known as ‘Mama Africa’ because she was from South Africa.

She was a very inspiring person. Although her life was not easy at all, she became a great singer and a very important civil rights activist.

Let’s know about her and her country: MIRIAM MAKEBA AND THE APARTHEID

And sing along her hit song: PATA PATA. Lyrics and translation.

‘RESPECT’: una canción y dos puntos de vista

Con motivo del Día Internacional de la Eliminación de la Violencia contra la Mujer, vamos a escuchar una canción que el tiempo ha convertido en un himno de la lucha por la igualdad de derechos de las mujeres. Sin embargo, el tema original distaba mucho de la versión de Aretha Franklin, tanto la música como el sentido del texto.

Primero, leeremos un texto de la revista Pikara Magazine sobre la  gran cantante Aretha Franklin, tristemente fallecida el pasado verano:

R-E-S-P-E-T-O por Aretha Franklin de Carlos Bouzas

Aquí podéis escuchar la canción de Otis Redding (la portada del disco ya lo dice todo)

Y aquí la posterior versión de Aretha:

En este documento podéis descargar las letras de ambas, y su traducción, para que podáis compararlas: LETRAS COMPARADAS

Remember, remember…the 5th of November.

In Britain, every November the 5th people burn effigies in bonfire during celebrations with lots of fireworks: it’s Guy Fawkes Night! it’s a special day in honour of a historic event.

In November 1605 a group of men made a plan to blow up the House of Parliament (the government buildings) in London. The plan is known as the “Gunpowder Plot”. A man called Guy Fawkes had been commissioned to set off the explosion. The police found the gunpowder before it exploded and they caught the people involved in the plot. They were tortured and killed. From that day forward, people of England have a bonfire with Fawkes’ effigie and fireworks every 5th of November.
