Civilization

The Angolan tenor singer, Nelson EBO, and myself as composer, Dimitri ARNAUTS, have recently teamed up to write, perform and make available new inspiring music to the Angolan, African and worldwide audiences. 

The first part of our project will result in a series of songs for tenor solo and virtual orchestra and art video’s on important topics as poverty, exclusion, opportunity - and joyful hope - despite despair and harsh life conditions.

Honoring the lost lives, the memory and the legacy of the victims of slave trade routes and their descendants, we present to your reflection, meditation and consideration this new song - a sad march in remembrance of all enslaved humans from past and present times: CIVILIZAÇÃO

Based on a poem by Agostinho Neto (1922 – 1979)
