A DEUS DOS ORIXÁS
THE GODDESS OF THE ORISHAS
(Romildo-Toninho)

Iansa,* where is Ogum?*
Iansa, where is Ogum?
He went to the sea

Iansa combs
Her soft hair
When the light of the full moon
Shines on the waters of the river
Ogum dreamed
Of the daughter of Nana
And thought that the stars
Were the eyes of Iansa

But where is Ogum?
He went to the sea
Iansa where is Ogum?
repeat

In the land of the Orishas
Love was divided
Between a peaceful god
Between a god who fought
A fight only ends
When there is a victor
Iansa became the queen
Of the crown of Shango*

But Iansa, where is Ogum?
He went to the sea
