Portugal is not Lisbon, it consists of small villages and districts
where people have their own songs, local costumes and sing
songs relating to their world. To Alte, they came for
an evening of music and dance. What were the songs about,
they were about hardships of working in the field, looking after
animals and milking cows and goats. But it was very sexy too,
a woman sang, you can’t come to my bed unless you behave,
and a man's voice promised he would always take care of her
if she would be a bit forthcoming. And there were songs about
young love kissing in the hay stack and disapproving parents.
Like religions, folk music has the sharing about love and human
hardships, it doesn't matter which country songs emit from
which religion they believe in; no it is about simple drama of
love, jealousy, and chaste kiss under the olive tree of peace.
