Revolution Brewing in Portugal

Coming to a city near you soon

The Portuguese Revolution of 25th April 1974

The Carnation Revolution

A military backed non-violent revolution!

Grandola, Vila Morena:” is a Portuguese song by Zeca ¬†Afonso, that tells of the fraternity among the people of Grandola, a town in the Alentejo.

Dictator Salazar’s Estado New regime considered the song to be associated with Communism, and as a result it was banned from being played or broadcast.

On April 25, 1974, at 12:15AM the song was broadcast on Portuguese radio as a signal to start the revolution that overthrew the regime; it thus became commonly associated with the Carnation Revolution and the beginning of democratic rule in Portugal.

Grandola, vila morena

Terra da fraternidade

O povo e quem mais ordena

Dentro de ti, o cidade

Dentro de ti, o cidade

O povo e quem mais ordena

Terra da fraternidade

Grandola, vila morena

Em cada esquina um amigo

Em cada rosto igualdade

Grandola, vila morena

Terra da fraternidade

 

Grandola, earthy town

Land of brotherhood

‘Tis the people who command the most

Inside of you, o city

Inside of you, o city

‘Tis the people who command the most

Land of brotherhood

Grandola, earthy town

On every corner, a friend

In every face, equality

Grandola, earthy town

Land of brotherhood
