The Meaning Behind The Song: Terapia Eskuta.dor by NUBRU
As a Music Technician, I am always on the lookout for new and exciting music from around the world. One day, while exploring the vibrant music scene of Cape Verde, I stumbled upon a song that instantly captivated me. The song was “Terapia Eskuta.dor” by NUBRU, featuring the talented artists Nana and Batchart. Not only was the melody catchy and infectious, but the lyrics also struck a chord with me.
“Terapia Eskuta.dor” translates to “Listener Therapist” in English. The song revolves around the healing power of music and how it can help us overcome our pain and hardships. Nana begins the song with the powerful chorus, “Móda k plánta presizá di sol y agua, Na nha álma mesté muzika ke pa sará nhas magua,” which means, “Like a plant needs sun and water, my soul needs music to heal my sorrows.” This concept resonated with me deeply, as I have always turned to music during difficult times in my life.
In the first verse, NUBRU talks about how negative energy can drain us of love and happiness. They compare it to a battery that needs to be recharged. The lyrics emphasize the importance of shifting to a positive mindset and reframing negative thoughts into positive ones. It is a reminder that we have the power to control our thoughts and emotions, and music can be our guiding force in doing so.
Batchart takes over in the second verse, discussing how music acts as a therapy to escape from the chaos and regain control. He describes his mind as a vessel that needs to be emptied and relieved, comparing his experience to taking a painkiller. The lyrics convey the idea that music has the power to uplift our spirits, giving us the strength and motivation to face any challenges that come our way.
The chorus repeats throughout the song, reminding us that just as plants need sunlight and water to grow, our souls need music to heal our wounds. It serves as a powerful affirmation of the song’s central message.
For me, “Terapia Eskuta.dor” is not just a song; it is a personal journey. The first time I heard it, I was instantly drawn to its infectious rhythm and emotionally charged lyrics. It reminded me of the importance of music in my own life and how it has helped me navigate through various ups and downs. There have been moments where I felt overwhelmed, and music has been my solace, my therapy.
NUBRU, Nana, and Batchart have beautifully crafted a song that speaks to the universal power of music. “Terapia Eskuta.dor” is a testament to the ability of music to heal, inspire, and ignite emotions within us. It serves as a reminder that no matter what language we speak or where we come from, music is a language that unites us all.
