Galicia é, segundo os autores da antigüidade, unha das primeiras sociedades matriarcais do mundo. AI-LALELO é unha homenaxe ás mulleres que ergueron o país e conseguiron manter a nosa tradición, lingua e cultura propias ata hoxe. Raíz e modernidade fúndense nun novo son, unha canción baseada nas típicas cantigas tradicionais galegas pero cunha pinga futurista grazas á intelixencia artificial e cunha mensaxe valiosa para as vindeiras xeracións: Soamente nós podemos conseguir que a nosa identidade como pobo siga viva.

Costureira en primavera
botará-la sementeira
labrarás sen ter arado; ai si, ai non
nin máis outra ferramenta

A costureira no vranhe
camisa e saia cortou
inda se ía deitare
cando o sol alvoreou

Costureira polo outono
urdidoira polo vrán
pónsell’a cara morena
e as carnes como azafrán

A costureira no inverno
coa máquina a traballare,
á beiriña da lareira
vai frío, non é verdade?

Galicia is, according to ancient authors, one of the first matriarchal societies in the world. AI-LALELO is a tribute to the women who built the country and maintained our tradition, language and culture up to nowadays.
Roots and modernity merge into a new sound, a song based on the typical traditional Galician “Cantigas” but with a futuristic point thanks to AI techniques. With a powerful message for our next generations: We are the only ones capable of keeping our cultural identity alive.

EN:

Seamstress in spring
will sow the seed
will plow without a plough
nor another tool

The seamstress in summer
cuts a shirt and a skirt
She goes to rest
when it begins to get light

Seamstress in autumn
touched by the summer
she got tanned face
and saffron skin

The seamstress in winter
works with a sewing machine
next to the fireplace
it’s getting cold, isn’t it?
