The song is a weapon, wrote and sang Zé Mário. Gabriel Celaya, a Spanish poet, wrote the same thing about poetry and added ammunition: poetry is a weapon loaded with the future. The dialectic is old and known: What was born first, the word or the concept? Form or content? Sound or sign? If language influences - and in what way - our way of thinking, the intervention song, founded on the power of words, is never just a document nor serves only to remember the past. It fixes the present and shapes the future. It is from this place that we set out on a contemporary journey born of an ancient marriage: the word and song as a form of alert, intervention, protest. Today as yesterday, from Grândola, in search of a fairer tomorrow.
