CULTURA PROFETICA - NO ME INTERESA [PUERTO RICO, 2005]
"Te vistes de benevolencia pero no eres de dar, eres de acaparar."
Sorry I haven’t given you guys any new stuff lately! I thought I’d come back with a bang and share this amazing song by Puerto Rican reggae band Cultura Profética (Prophetic Culture), called No Me Interesa (It Doesn’t Interest Me). The lyrics are an explicit rejection of North American colonialism and the destruction of Puerto Rican culture. Lead singer Willy Rodriguez denounces the luxury cars, big-screen TVs, and processed foods in juxtaposition to a different model of development based on respect and dignity. Below are the lyrics with the English translation afterward. Tumblr recently changed something and if I try to paste the lyrics directly it spaces them far too much, and I don’t want to take over your dash if I can avoid it.
