What does "paranaue-parana" mean? I know it's a call in capoeira music. But what are the words, and do they mean something? How about "sim-sim-sim"? Thanks-- Apteryx

Hello. "Paraná is a river in Brazil." source: lyrics page, hosted by geocities.com http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/Vines/5380/volume1.html "Paraná is the state and river marking the border between Brazil and Paraguay." source: "Songs Lyrics," hosted by capoeirasantabarbara.com http://www.capoeirasantabarbara.com/songs.html Some people translate Paraná as "river," but most don't translate it at all because it's the name of a particular river. "Paraná é Paraná é Paraná" "It's the river Paraná It's the river, it's the river" http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/Vines/5380/other.html "Paranau é, Paranau é, Paraná" "Paranau is, Paranau is, Paraná " source: Capoeira Lyrics, hosted by geocities.com http://www.geocities.com/nyterydr21/music/lyrics/lyrics12.html -------------------- The lyrics "sim sim sim" mean "yes yes yes." "O sim, sim, sim--O yes, yes, yes " source: Capoeira Lyrics, hosted by geocities.com http://www.geocities.com/nyterydr21/music/lyrics/lyrics11.html "Oi sim sim sim Oi yes yes yes" source: voltaaomundo.com http://www.voltaaomundo.com/Corridos.htm search strategy "paranaue parana" "paranau e parana" "parana is" river "sim sim sim", "yes yes yes" I hope this helps.

Good work, Juggler. Thank you. I did search this one myself, but all I found were the words, not a translation. A bonus answer might have given me something about *why* those are such common Capoeira lyrics, but I didn't ask that specifically. Apteryx
