On the 18th July 1918 Rolihlahla Mandela was born in the Madiba clan, village of Mvezo, Transkei. Nelson Mandela, as known by the world, gained international acclaim for his activism and for fostering racial reconciliation.
In tribute to this great man, I wrote this song and I invited three good friends to join me: Cindy Möbes and Gustavo Sequeira on vocals and Carlos Saborida on guitars.

Rainbow Land

Struggling
facing winds and high storms
using all of your strengths
against a stupid world
to allow a dream

Guilty
sentenced for that idea
sent to Robben Island
that became your home
for many years

Living
in a small cell
working hard
finding forces
not to break down

Facing
isolation
in that damp place
you never gave up
to fight for your land

A rainbow land
Dream of hope and joy

Later
when the breeze of freedom
blew again for you
your fight for peace began
that fight you did with faith
in reconciliation of a nation
That commitment
you did pursue so much
In direction to a grand new land

A rainbow land
Dream of hope and joy

A lifetime fighting for so many
A lifetime fighting hard to see
No more revenge

A rainbow land
Dream of hope and joy
