UM BATUQUE AFRICANO ME CHAMOU
A PINTURA FEZ DA TELA, SEU LUGAR
OS PRAZERES VÃO SE REFLETIR
NAS HISTÓRIAS QUE EU VOU CONTAR
SAI O TREM DA ESTAÇÃO, PRA TRILHAR ESTA CANÇÃO
MOJU, MAGÉ, MOJÚBÀ!
LUZ DOS OLHOS DE OLODUMARÉ EM CADA AMANHECER
TOCA O ATABAQUE, ONDE A ÁFRICA APORTOU
CLAMANDO POR PIEDADE
TOCA O ATABAQUE, ONDE A LÁGRIMA APORTOU
MARIA CONGA ERGUEU A LIBERDADE
BENTA ÁGUA, RITOS TÃO DIVINOS.
PUREZA A PÉ, PROCISSÃO…
SE A FESTA É DE PEDRO NÃO DEMORA
NOSSA FÉ, SENHORA, DESTA ORAÇÃO!
A TRIBO QUE CHEGOU AQUI PRIMEIRO
DEU O NOME FEITICEIRO ÀS ENTRANHAS DESSE CHÃO
AUÊ, AUÊ NA RIQUEZA DA PINGUEIRA
PRA ESCORRER A DOÇURA BRASILEIRA
CAMINHO DO NOBRE METAL
PAVIO DE FOGO E FÉ
DA LUTA CONTRA O MARECHAL
AOS DRIBLES NA VIDA, MANÉ
FOLIA DE TODOS OS REIS
E O SAMBA DESABROCHANDO EM FLOR, NAS CORES DO PINTOR
QUEREM PEMBA, QUEREM GUIA,
QUEREM FIGA DE GUINÉ
SINFONIA DE TAMBORES,
HOJE A GIRA VAI GIRAR
Ê MOJÚBÀ, Ê MOJÚBÀ
The parade will be a tribute to the 452 years of Magé, the second oldest city in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The Samba School will hail its cultural and historical aspects, because the region had great importance in the time of the mining for being part of the "Golden Route" between Minas Gerais and Rio. The district is rich in its socio-cultural relevance and Inocentes intends to count a part of the History of Brazil that is confused with a part of its History. Thus, the mission of the school is to take to the world the curiosities of the city and to show on the Avenue how our country is abundant of culture and historical legacy.
