Cumple Jazz: Nina Simone



Feliz cumpleaños Nina Simone <3

Cantante, compositora y pianista de jazz, blues, rhythm and blues y soul. Conocida también como High Priestess of Soul (la alta Sacerdotisa del soul).

Además de por su talento musical, Nina fue conocida por ser una gran luchadora y defensora de los derechos civiles afroamericanos . Lucha que se refleja en sus canciones. Como la que hemos adjuntado en este post.

Four Women.

«My skin is black, my arms are long My hair is woolly, my back is strong Strong enough to take the pain, inflicted again and again What do they call me? My name is aunt Sarah My name is aunt Sarah, aunt Sarah

My skin is yellow, my hair is long Between two worlds I do belong But my father was rich and white He forced my mother late one night And what do they call me? My name is Saffronia, my name is Saffronia

My skin is tan, my hair fine My hips invite you, my mouth like wine Whose little girl am I? Anyone who has money to buy What do they call me? My name is Sweet Thing

My name is Sweet Thing My skin is brown, my manner is tough I’ll kill the first mother I see, my life has been rough I’m awfully bitter these days, because my parents were slaves What do they call me? My name is Peaches.»
